before date

Pages that link to a before date, e.g. before 2007, document a predicted or expected or scheduled or assumed or advocated event - one out of the control of users.

A goal or a proposal for the users should use the term:by not the term:before, to signal they committed to that goal or proposal, and that it's under their control.

openpolitics.ca itself will treat the external events expected before 2006 differently than those that are committed to be achieved by 2006. Using the before notation will guarantee no support for the goal from the users.
