Event Details

Richard Pietro is an average citizen who has undertaken to do something very much above average. On July 2nd, 2014 he started a cross-Canada motorcycle tour with the objective of bringing attention to, and encouraging citizen engagement in, the Open Government and Open Data movements. You can follow his blog here:

His tour will take him from Toronto, ON, east to Charlottetown, PEI, west to Victoria, BC, and back to the Nation’s Capital on September 16th, 2014 to wrap up the tour. There are between 20 and 30 official stops in between where formal events are scheduled, and hundreds of conversations at unofficial stops where Richard is engaging people in on Open Government, Open Data and Civic Engagement conversations. Ottawa is the last stop. Ottawa is the Grand Finale.

The Ottawa Event:

At Ottawa City Hall on September 16th, 2014 from 6:30 to 9:00 there will be an Open Government Grand Bazaar with a live Talk Show on site - “Richard Pietro and Friends – Live From the Open Government Grand Bazaar at Ottawa’s City Hall”. The entire event will be taped by Rogers TV and Webcast.
