political discourse in web 2.0

Andre Marin is my mum's Hero, mine too.  Today, the Ontario Ombudsman finally released his report on the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services's misconduct leading up to the G20 summit.  There are many articles circulating using very provocative, eloquent quotes like the one below:

"For the citizens of Toronto the days up to and including the weekend of the G8/G20 will live in infamy as a time period where martial law was set in the city of Toronto, leading to the most massive compromise of civil liberties in Canadian history. We can never let that happen again."

But the Ontario Ombudsman is not just a figurehead, he's a man named Andre Marin with a very human side and I wanted to know how he felt about reviewing the G20 summit, not just what his conclusions are.  I've written about this before, and I want to say again how powerful a tool Twitter is for quick interactions and discourse with public figures that one blogger wouldn't traditionally have access to let alone get a comment from.  Yet here we are!
