Press Release Draft Edit
This is the press release for the mainstream media (MSM) - please edit and improve
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The Canadian Policy Wiki publicly launched today, Sunday, Jan. 8, providing Canadians with an option to help propose bills and policy to the Canadian Parliament.
Canadian Policy Wiki runs a progam called MediaWiki, used in popular websites such as Wikipedia, allowing users to edit the content of a website. The idea is that collaborative effort will bring every individual's ideas together and ultimately improve the document on each new revision. The goal of the Wiki is to allow Canadians to help ensure that they have a chance to steer the direction the Canadian government by writing policies that they want to see allowing MP’s to see the views of everyday Canadians.
The Canadian Policy Wiki is online at http://www.canadianpolicywiki.ca
