GPO Living Platform

The GPO Living Platform is an attempt to apply Living Platform protocols within the Green Party of Ontario. Technology, i.e. tikiwiki, has been already deployed for this purpose.

Current GPO policy guides are static and do not allow anyone to add comments or suggest improvements except through generic role accounts like "sitecontent@greenparty.on.ca". This is not useful or effective, and certainly will not create participatory democracy.

The Green Party of Canada Living Platform, troubled as it is, demonstrates that even those who are hostile to open politics itself are not capable of denying the usefulness of this kind of facility. So the point is proven, and there's a need to renew the GPO policy in an open and effective way.

Similarly, a GPO Living Agenda is required to replace the embarassing use of tikiwiki in the GPO to hold obsolete notes and failed proposals.
