B.C. government caucus chair Gordon Hogg said a new upgraded caucus website will allow voters a better insight into what Liberal MLAs do on their behalf, as well as more interactivity.

The partisan website, www.governmentcaucus.bc.ca, which was upgraded last week, aims at improved access to information about  programs and activities of government MLAs through enhanced organization of content, and is designed to be mobile-friendly, allowing for easy sharing of content with social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

"It's modernizing the system – catching up to what technology allows us to do," Hogg, said, admitting he is still a  "neophyte" when it comes to maximizing use of online means of communication.

The Surrey-White Rock MLA acknowledged the website "certainly could have had more activity" in the past had content loaded more quickly and uploading pictures to the site been a speedier process.

"It will be easier for me and other people to have access to photos and videos by going to one site," he said.

Hogg noted that since its a site for the Liberal caucus, visitors can expect to see a more political focus in content than the usual government site.

"It's slightly different – it's definitely the party part of operations," he said.
