ImagineHalifax was a pioneering project in collaborative writing of a municipal platform and citizen survey.

It simplified the many issues in municipal government to a short sharp list of keywords, each one associated with an Imagine Halifax initiative. A generic municipal initiative framework is being prepared based on this input.

The imaginehalifax.ca web service published the Imagine Halifax terms under CC-by-nc-sa in 2004. It ceded all rights in these to the Efficient Civics Guild to better coordinate municipal and other projects. The initiatives themselves remain (C) Imagine Halifax

These seeded the list of all control verbs and all issues used at openpolitics.ca itself.
