For the email to the parlement, it is difficult to send them. I'm doing
a master in computer science and I have difficulty to use it. I have
send one email. I just retried to see if I could, and I was not able to.
With not put the look-up by postal code directly on the same page and
take this result. If it is not good, people can do it by the lists of
ridings. This will make it much simple to use.
Hope this help to make it easier to use.
