eDemocracy 2.0 Comes to Canada


    
    ElectionMall CEO Discusses How Technology is Changing Politics Worldwide





    
</pre>
<p><location>TORONTO</location>, <chron>Nov. 4</chron> /CNW/ -- Ravi Singh, CEO and founder of ElectionMall Technologies, is scheduled to speak at the 10th annual Art and Science of Public Affairs conference, sponsored by the Public Affairs Association of <location>Canada</location>.  ElectionMall Technologies is a campaign technology company that is dedicated to helping campaigns of all sizes utilize technology and reach voters since 2000.  Singh is recognized as the "Campaign Guru," a global expert on campaign technology.</p>
<p/>
<p>Singh will be speaking on U.S. politics Thursday morning, focusing on the political sphere after Obama's campaign, and if these changes can be applied to Canada's political climate.  Currently over 83% of the population of <location>Canada</location> is using the Internet, according to International Telecommunication Union (ITU).</p>
<p/>
<p>"Social networking sites are the new town halls," stresses Ravi Singh.  "Canadian Politicians need to start using these resources to engage voters with their representatives."</p>
<p/>
<p>Currently, several social networking outlets exist for politicians in <location>Canada</location>, but few are taking advantage of them.  Twitter has less than 100 Canadian politicians using the site, whereas the <location>United States</location> has an entire separate Twitter location for all the members of Congress.  MySpace has created an "Impact <location>Canada</location>" site that allows political parties to answer voters' questions, but currently only the Liberal Party has joined the site.</p>
<p/>
<p>"I hope this information will be a catalyst to the Canadian population and help them reach a new level of democracy within their political system," states Singh.</p>
<p/>
<p>The 10th annual Art and Science of Public Affairs conference will be occurring November 4-5 at the <location>Toronto</location> Board of Trade.
