Crowd-source e-democracy

A group in Yellowknife is trying to create, 'The world's first-ever direct e-democracy.'

Their idea is to run a slate of candidates (for city council) who will harness the enabling power of technology to empower citizens to influence and even decide how they (collectively) vote on the more controversial decisions. They're building a web platform/tool to run referendums online. It's an innovative experiment from Canada's North.
