A group of Canadians have set up the Trudeaumetre website which lists the 184 promises made by new Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and monitors if they have been implemented, are in progress, or have been broken.
It’s a good initiative, and would be nice to see in other countries, such as New Zealand.
The key is that the people doing it should be non-partisan.
So far Trudeau has implemented three promises:
- Revoke rules and regulations that muzzle government scientists and allow them to speak freely about their work (with only limited and publicly stated exceptions).
- Restore mandatory long-form census.
- Include an equal number of women and men in the Cabinet.
