Digital Governance Forum Opening Panel Video Available
By all accounts the IOG hosted Digital Governance Forum was a resounding success. The opening panel – which featured a discussion on democracy in the digital era with Gerald Butts, Brad Lavigne and Tim Powers, moderated by Justin Ling – commanded the audience’s attention for a full two hours. Panelists explored the challenges and opportunities associated with digital era governance from the perspective of political insiders in the lead up to the 2015 federal election.
Clearly the discussion was of interest to those beyond the Forum’s walls. “The mixed blessing of the Internet was a constant theme when three of the leading figures from Canada’s political backrooms” wrote Susan Delacourt in a widely retweeted op-ed in the Toronto Star.
The full video of the forum’s opening panel is now available online. You can watch either the Adobe webcast or the CPAC broadcast:
