Tonight London’s City Council unanimously passed the Open Data Initiative. There were great words of support from many Councilors. Thanks to everyone for all the hard work getting us here.

None of this would have been possible without the support of Elaine Gamble and the team at City Hall. Elaine has become incredibly involved in the tech community over the last 6 months and we look forward to working with her in the coming months.

Special thanks to David Eaves and the team at Open Data Ottawa for their inspiration and advice.

And, of course, thanks to Aaron McGowan for all his hard work putting this site together and helping spread the word.

The motion that passed Council tonight is embedded below.
