Mississauga’s new face and digital city rankings

Torontonians may love to mock our suburban 905 neighbours, but Mississauga’s new city site is incredible. Not only is it written in XHTML and uses a CSS-based layout that leaves Netscape 4 behind, it also provides a wide range of e-services. (It does, however, have ugly URLs and the site is impossible to validate, though a quick scan shows it comes close.)

Technically, Canada’s sixth largest city, Mississauga now offers a range of services online that we in the city of Toronto would love to have. Coincidentally, a new study ranked Toronto as the 10th best city in the world when it comes to e-governance. David Akin explains why the results are suspect.
