Earning Your Keep

Are you one of those people that believe politicians don't accomplish much? Have you ever wondered what your MPs are doing to earn the salaries they do (at least $144,000)? Well wonder no longer. There's a website called "How'd They Vote?: A Resource For Political Accountability" where you can see all sorts of information on the activities of every MP.

If you don't know who your MP was from the last election, they provide an interactive map of Canada where you can click on your province and get a list of everyone that was elected from that province. The only drawback is that it does require that you know at least what electoral district you belong to. If you don't know that, fear not. Most people probably don't. Elections Canada has conveniently provided a site where you can
find your electoral district simply by entering your postal code.

On the
"How'd They Vote?" site you'll find a convenient compilation of all the quotes, number of words spoken and voting history of each MP as well as all the Bills that were debated. If you go to the "MP Statistics" site, just click on the arrows for the column that interests you to have the data sorted in ascending or descending order.

For example, Paul Martin is listed as having spoken only 44,551 words in the last Parliament as opposed to the chattiest MP in the House, Paul Szobo of the Liberals, who is credited with 154,683 words. Check out how much your MP had to say, what they said, and how they voted on each Bill.

It's interesting to see that the Conservatives as a group are a relatively quiet bunch. Only one member appears in the top ten list of words spoken in the House of Parliament and he's at number eight.

Sometimes it's not how much you have to say that matters. Perhaps they're just succinct and to the point? Politicians succinct and to the point? What kind of politicians are they anyway?

Another question that may be keeping you up at night is how tech savvy is your party anyway? Well you can get that answered as well. Click on "MP Websites" to get statistics on website usage by each party, province, and MP. Who new that 60% of BLOC MPs didn't have a website? Conservatives have the greatest presence on the internet with 97% of their MPs having a website.

For more MP and political party trivia go see for yourself at

Earn More Money!

Have you spent too much money for the holidays? Feeling just a little short? What to do? What to do? Thank goodness it's an election year and they're hiring.

The last election cost us over $260 million and this one won't be much cheaper. Why not get a piece of the action? You can work for either a political party, one of the electoral district associations, or directly for Elections Canada.

Start your search by going to
this site and clicking on the options shown. You can fill out the online form provided by Elections Canada if you want to work for them directly or find the contact information for the party of your choice.

Good luck in your search.
