Canadians Are Crowdsourcing Justin Trudeau's Government

Life in the public square is playing itself out online, only the Internet has made the square bigger, more diverse, and capable of operating in real time. With every decision our government makes (or must make), social media in particular allow us to quickly gather, share, discuss, debate, suggest and demand, effectively crowdsourcing solutions to the questions facing the nation. And by the looks of things, Canadians will have suggestions for Justin Trudeau every step of the way.
