You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • Look into fixing image issue with reddit

          I posted this post to reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/opensource/comments/8nrpp1/first_time_canadian_prime_minister_justin_trudeau/ but Justin's face didn't show up. It picked the first image from the page.

          Is there a way to highlight the message selected in the tweet earlier rather than seeing it in context of the rest from that session?

            • 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
              Yes: 146 25 0 0 1 1 1 174

                • 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.

                  • Filter non-relevant words and phrases from world-clouds.

                    The world-clouds are cute, but not entirely actionable when regularly-used-but-context-neutral words are counted. We shouldn't see 'here', 'regard', 'take', 'report', etc. as these are just general communication and not subject relevant.

                      • Provide links to alert administrators of false matches in news items.

                        News stories which feature persons with names similar to the names of MPs are being erroneously associated with those MPs. Perhaps links are needed so that site visitors can alert administrators when this occurs.

                        • show voting record for all bills, even if historical

                          some older bills do not have voting record and it is hard to find them if you are not a good researcher. it is interesting to know who voted for what, so I propose that you (if you can and if you please) add voting record of MPs on all historical votes on openparliament. the data is found on the Lib of parliament.
