This discussion paper originally, published last year,  is intended to continue the broad conversation as we move toward a national, digital innovation strategy for Canada. My comments and perspectives are constrained to areas of interest and knowledge as a professional who has been immersed in the digital world from a strategic planning, marketing, technology and content perspective for more then 20 years.  In short, I propose seven achievable steps that the federal government, in collaboration with others, can take now to realize our collective digital innovation goals.
