Data from Public Consultation on Open Government

Thanks to everyone for participating in the public consultation on open government. Phase I, "Brainstorm," ran from May 21-28th and elicited 900+ ideas and 33,000 votes. Phase II, "Discussion," ran from June 3-21 and attracted more than 1,000 comments in response to 16 topics. Phase III, "Drafting," which lasted from June 22-July 6, resulted in 305 drafts by 375 authors, with 2,256 of you voting on those drafts. We are in the process of reviewing all these materials, as well as submissions we received via mail and email (posted online in "From the Inbox") along with input from government employees in order to prepare our report and recommendations.
We invite you to help distill what we’ve learned. You can download the content from each of the three phases of public consultation here.
We will post further updates as the review process matures.
