“I’m a Canadian who was involved in local backroom politics for a while — don’t bother emailing. If you are really upset about this, send him a hand written letter.
“Members of Parliament assume that each handwritten letter represents the opinions of 100 other people who didn’t bother to write. As an added bonus, you don’t have to put a stamp on a letter to a Member of Parliament. (if it’s mailed in Canada, that is).”
