Joey Coleman: Hamilton Council improving due to transparency of live streaming video

Hamilton Council improving due to transparency of live streaming video

Andrew Dreschel of The Hamilton Spectator wrote that Hamilton’s City Council “appears to be getting along more harmoniously than it has in years.”

Dreschel attributes this to Mayor Bob Bratina’s leadership style.

I attribute this to live-streaming of all meetings. Let’s face it, transparency is more effective than shuffling the chairs for improving any government.

This is the topic of my Urbanicity piece for June.

I throw in a pitch for open data as well.

I can’t wait to see the words on pulp.
