  1. How many MPs have their riding in their heat map, and to what extent

    How many MPs are actively engaged in their own home riding based on word heat maps? Looking at the heat maps, I see a number of MPs with low to no reference to their riding in their heat map. There are a few that look to be quite active locally. I realize Ministers will show more to their Ministry but I would think that all should have some level of reference to issues within their riding.

  2. For each vote, indicate how the parties have whipped the vote. Ideally, have the feature indicate which MPs have dissented.

    For each vote, indicate whether the vote is a one-line (free), two-line (cabinet), or three-line (whipped) vote for each party for which an MP votes.
    This would make identifying dissenters easier. An advanced version of the feature would actually indicate the dissenters.
    This is really important for MP democratic representation as opposed to party discipline.

  3. Adjust postal code search with changes in the latest boundary adjustments (2011)

    I am in an area where I am impacted by the adjustments of 2011. When I entered my postal code, I was linked with my previous MP.

  4. Add section for bills that recently came into effect

    It would be useful if you could add a new section on the Bills page for those that have recently come into effect. Thanks for your great work!

  6. Provide a diff of the acts changed by a bill

    It would be awesome to see the changes a bill makes in some type of online interface. Something like it commonly done for code.

    Eg: http://markdotto.com/uploads/2014/09/github-split-diffs-v1.png

  7. Have a running total of how all the parties and independents voted on each bill.

    Example:

    Bill C-44: An Act to amend the Canadian Security Intelligence Service Act and other Acts
    Short Title: Protection of Canada from Terrorists Act

    CPC LPC NDP Bloc GPC Force indp Total
    NV: 17 10 17 1 0 1 1 47

  9. City government councils tracked here as well

    I would like this type of information for my city as well. I want to be able to see how my current Councillor has voted on all legislation that was put forward for a vote. I would like to be able to search on a topic and see what the reps have said. etc.

  10. List different search filters available.

    I can't seem to find a full list of the available search filters (ie: text:)

  11. Create a poll for website users to vote by riding on each proposed bill

    This would encourage accountability of MPs. It would inform voters as to whether their MP is listening to them. It would promote a participatory democracy, one in which consensus is built through dialogue.

  13. I would like to help add more contact info for MPs (Facebook/LinkedIN/Google+/YouTube))

    A great website! It would be great for users to be able to help you update the profiles with more contact info. MPs have facebook profiles and Pages, Google+ profiles and pages, YouTube account(s), sometimes multiple Twitter accounts, LinkedIN profile. And perhaps a link to the Elections Canada Map. (i can help with this, you don't need to enter the data, have most of it on my blog http://unschedulecannabis.blogspot.ca I just need a field to be able to enter it in, then you can verrify it's accuracy (or users can help with it's accuracy)

  16. Easy Access Mass MP E-mail Addresses

    Why write to one MP when you can write to them ALL. It would be great if this site grouped the e-mail addresses or all MP's by Province so that any citizen can simply 'copy and paste' them as a group into the TO line of an e-mail, without having to hunt and peck through all their websites and having to key them in one at a time.

  17. Enter a Twitter Link on Your Website Page so it would be easier to share this great site!

    I find most of the time if you just enter a URL in a tweet it doesn't show in the stream. It would be so much easier for people to share your website if you had a twitter share button built right into your website page!

  18. Allow multiple pages to be saved to PDF with all comments expanded.

    For instance, a search on an MP's speeches will return 40 pages or more. It would be helpful to be able to convert the lot with Adobe Acrobat to a single document.

  19. An app for mobile devices.

    An app for mobile devices is really the best I can describe it. A simple clean and concise app for easy viewing on our favorite MP's shenanigans.
