Macleans: MPs: They're just like us

A Macleans article John Geddes follows up to the second annual Maclean’s survey of MPs. Featured are Bill Blaikie as overall winner, Michael Ignatieff as best public speaker, Joe Comartin as most-knowledgeable MP, and Charlie Angus as MP who does the best job for his local constituency.

It is important for out community to recognize politicians as being people like us, so that our community will feel more willing to offer our help to MPs in understanding technology issues (which most people don't understand as well as we do), rather than being upset at them for seeking to pass bills which would harm Canadian creativity and innovation.
