I was at the same presentation. You've given a good summary, the only thing I would add is that in addition to scoring and publicizing councillors' voting records, they also put on a big push to increase voter turn out. Voter ignorance and apathy is the main culprit for our current malaise.

I too hope something comes out of this. Even if you're not an organizer, consider talking to the board of your neighbourhood association. The GCL is an umbrella group of neighbourhood associations and citizens' groups. If we can get our neighbourhood associations talking to each other, it might be a catalyst. I'm working on mine.
