This issue of Lac Carling Governments’ Review has lots of bullish information and analysis on the e-government agenda in this country. While this material doesn’t shrug off the challenges involved — our scenesetter on the forthcoming Lac Carling Congress is in fact quite specific on that score — it’s generally upbeat. There are accounts of a far-reaching municipal venture in northern Alberta, a thriving networking community in the Maritimes, an aggressive federal drive towards e-procurement and more .– all good stuff, as they say around the copy desk.
