I originally setup Canadian Government 2.0 because I believe there needed to be a place for Canadians (and others as it is an open group) to discuss Canadian-specific information without it getting lost in the “main” Government 2.0 group. I thing your idea to broaden the mandate of the group beyond Web 2.0 is excellent, and i would propose given we have 145 members in the Canadian Government 2.0 already would be to change the name of the group, and move the Government 2.0 to a discussion group. I would also support transferring the group to a government employee if the group favours such a move, I support what is in the best interest of the group. However, my personal preference would not be to define the group according the the northernly direction from our American neighbour but rather keep “Canadian” in the group name and leave the group open to anyone that would like to join. My preference would not to fragment us among several groups thereby making it easier for us all to connect.
