Calling all MPs: It’s time to vote


2012 Parliamentarian of the Year: Elizabeth May

Attention: Parliamentarians

As you may already know, Maclean’s, Historica Canada, L’Actualité, and Ipsos Reid will again honour Canada’s best parliamentarians in 2013, as voted by you, their colleagues. The 7th edition of Canada’s Parliamentarians of the Year will again be featured in a special issue of Maclean’s magazine, as well as coverage in L’actualité.

To determine the best MPs, we need your help.

We’ve sent you our short survey by email and mail, asking you to provide confidential feedback on your fellow MPs from all political parties. You can submit your completed survey either by email, online or by fax. If you have misplaced the survey, require your personal ID, or have any other questions, please contact me at the following email address: jason.kirby @

Tomorrow, for caucus day, and for the remainder of the week, our staff will be on hand to take your completed surveys. To ensure all MPs have ample time to vote, we’ve also extended the deadline to Nov. 8.

All of your responses will be kept strictly confidential and the results will be reported only in aggregate. In addition, only Ipsos will have access to the voting data. Your participation will determine the best Member of Parliament who, in addition to being profiled in the special issue of Maclean’s, will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Ottawa on Nov. 19.  All the nominees will be invited to this event, at which the winner in each category will also be announced.

Again, we would like to assure you that your survey answers will be kept confidential. Maclean’s doesn’t see the responses—only Ipsos does. As we pause to celebrate the hard work and accomplishments of our elected representatives in Canada, we encourage you all to vote.
