10 Lessons in More Engaging Citizen Engagement”: A confused response

Toderian’s 10 Lessons in More Engaging Citizen Engagement”: A confused response – Wendy Sarkissian PhD.

Wendy Sarkissian recently spoke in Vancouver “Densification wars” and takes exception to Brent Toderian’s recent post about citizen engagement.

Quoting Jak King in article:

What the Plantetizen article does highlight is this City’s administration’s ability and indeed willingness to create public relations exercises in which citizens are invited to participate but which result in those same citizens having no genuine influence on policies that, most of us believe, were done deals before the first invite was ever sent. 

Bread and circuses are all we get.
