Our neighbours south of the 49th Parallel have come up with a pretty smart idea, and its name is Porkbusters. The idea is to identify wasteful programs, ask the appropriate Congressman/Representative to say whether or not they'll approve of cutting the pork, and then post the response. The details are over at instapundit's blog.
What I would like to do is have us northerners start our own version of it. I invite all Canadian Bloggers with an interest in this program to help out. I address myself in particular to the Non-Partisan Alliance of Blogging Canadians, Progressive Bloggers, and each party, province and territory's association of bloggers.
Under the Access to Information Act, we should be able to request whatever information is necessary to uncover such foolish programs and spending designed to buy votes. I don't have the capacity to host the information on this, like they've done at TTLB, so if anyone has the website to do this, it would be greatly appreciated if you could offer your services.
