Demonstrate our commitment to a digital economy by pursuing highly visible initiatives that are consistent with the values of this reform. That sounds like political rhetoric but what I mean is lead by example. One way of doing this would be to get the federal and provincial gov'ts digitizing and making accessable all public documents and images. Digitize libraries, make a Canadian C–Span (way overdue btw), stop using paper in your offices. Lead by example.

With aging public servants nearing retirement at alarming levels, modernizing our government departments and public institutions is a great place to start.
I saw a bit of this in the late 90's when Mackenna's government created Service New Brunswick as a "one shingle" model for government services. Although it hasn't been well sustained, the model has been adopted by several governments around the world and spawned some interesting Real Property Registry, and e–Government technologies that have become export products for NB companies. I think the NB experiment has shown though that efforts must be sustained well beyond political mandates which is difficult to do.
