Ottawa Politician High Tech Touch

The Hon. Garth Turner, P.C., M.P. brings Ottawa to his constituents and to Canadians via the web. using podcasts and streaming technologies Garth has created MPTV - Parliament's new TV station, a joint venture by Garth Turner, M.P. and the House of Commons, broadcasting across Canada and the world on the Internet.

I watched a few of Garth's vids and listened to some of his podcasts - informative and interesting, but a little too tame. I'd like to see some sparks fly, or at the least, some verbal sparring. Maybe Garth is just warming up...regardless, a great use of technology to keep the MPs in contact with those who pay their bills.

See Parliament, and maybe your MP being interviewed on
