Liveblog: Treasury Board President Tony Clement convenes an #opengovchat on twitter

December 15, 2011
In what may be a first for a federal minister, Treasury Board President and unofficial Minister of State (Twitterverse) Tony Clement will hold a "tweet chat" on open government this afternoon.  

From the advisory

"We want to hear from Canadians on how we can advance the Open Government initiative in Canada," said Minister Clement. "The valuable input we receive will help us develop an action plan for the International Open Government Partnership, and help make the Government of Canada more accessible to Canadians."


The English tweet chat on Open Government will take place on December 15 from 5:00 to 5:45 p.m. EST with a French chat occurring from 4:00 to 4:45 p.m. EST. The hashtag for  the English session is #opengovchat and #parlonsgouvert for the French session. The discussion will be hosted on the official Treasury Board Secretariat Twitter accounts @TBS_Canada (English) and @SCT_Canada (French).
