This article disgraces Wikipedia[edit]

This article is insulting to the very idea of Wikipedia. The page is wholly absent any substantive, or meaningful content, and it resembles a CGI website page more than an encyclopedic article. The mysterious deletions and selectively neglected details are astonishing. If this is the route we're going to take, why not just lock the article and turn it over to CGI to write themselves?

I hope this sort of activity is halted, and we can actually work together to construct a real page.

Is it me or this turn into a POV CGI pamphlet? --Elsan 01:25, 10 October 2006 (UTC)

It won't anymore. 198.84.235.35 (talk) 12:30, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

We gotta watch out for shills and be doubly careful about what is being reported in the news. The NPR piece is odd, it reported a very significant and juicy bit that CGI Group had its contract with the Province of Ontario government terminated because it failed to deliver on their health project. 198.84.235.35 (talk) 18:14, 27 October 2013 (UTC)

Relevant but not specific to Health Exchange Failures[edit]

Is anyone going to document and update and connect this article to the significant breaking news of their failures to supply a working solution for obamacare? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.31.31.109 (talk) 04:13, 23 October 2013 (UTC)

I think CGI or a subsidiary may have been the company who ran the electronic voting for the New Democratic Party leadership convention in Montreal, which had a major system failure on the final ballot, but I`m not certain about that.
