Advocacy and Public Policy Work in Canada with CiviCRM?

Who uses Drupal and CiviCRM to support advocacy and/or public policy work in Canada?

I've got a module here: https://drupal.org/project/civinorth
that I've been using on a number of sites for about a year and a half, and I'd be interested in helping others make use of it as well.

It's designed for a fairly specific meaning of 'advocacy' on a website - i.e., it facilitates communication from your organization's constituency (contacts in CiviCRM) with elected representatives (MPs, MPPs, city councillors).

Possible problem with Canadian data

I'm getting errors in the Drupal log which may be related to the fact that the addresses I am using are Canadian. The site is using CiviCRM 4.2 and Drupal 7.14

I get a bunch of errors like this:
Notice: Undefined property: CRM_Core_DAO::$coy.name as country
Notice: Undefined property: CRM_Core_DAO::$ste.name as state_province ...

Is there something special I need to do to resolve this?

I've also noticed that some errors in the error log seem to be related to the drop down list of Employers for a Contact.
