Why are there no #CivicLabs in Canada ?

It was a couple of years ago when I was in Barcelona ( Spain ) I discovered that the world had moved to the 21st Century, Cities have created their own #civicLabs.  What is a Civic Lab.  Cities that “get it” have created corporations outside of the city “reporting” to the city that take the problems and challenges of their city, merge that with the bright minds in the private sector along with the municipality and voila the create solutions and create new companies.

For me the leaders in this space are Barcelona, Boston and Helsinki…… I am sure there are others……
