Ever wonder about what your Member of Parliament is up to? How he or she voted on legislation that interests you? Well, wonder no more. Just clock in at http://parl.howdtheyvote.ca/ and check up on your MP or on that bill you were wondering about.
It’s not perfect:
- some bills gak the Ruby app
- they only have data for 3 sessions of parliament
- there’s no information about who put this together, or how you can help out
- they tend not to have the names of bills, never mind the text
But for now, it’s better than nothing. And, unless I’m prepared to do something better, I can just keep my trap shut.
