  Elections
Canadian elections are held under a process that reflects well-understood principles and is a part of the country's political culture.
While elections and changes in either the prime minister or the government as a whole may be related to each other, there is no necessary connection between elections and changes in the executive.
Each general election is unique, for while the basic principles on which elections are conducted have varied remarkably little since the beginning, the personnel involved and the issues fought over are never entirely the same.

 Laurier, Sir Wilfrid
In the federal election, the Liberals defeated the Conservatives with 118 seats...
But his party's defeats in the elections of 1878 and 1882 meant a curb to his ambitions, though he himself was re-elected in Québec-Est, and he took less interest in political debate.
After 1908, despite his desire to correct certain abuses arising from the far-reaching changes in society, Laurier focused his attention primarily on 2 bills which, in the final analysis, resulted in his defeat.

 Historical Voter Turnout in Canadian Federal Elections - 1867-2004
However, it is important to note the fluctuations of the numbers and percentage of registered voters as a percentage of the whole Canadian population (as measured at the census prior to the election).
For example, the portion of Canadians under 15 years of age has dropped from 32.5% in 1941 to 19.1% in 2001; this figure is calculated from Census data available at Stats Canada.
With this change in demographics in mind, one actually should have seen an increase in the percentage of Canada's total population who vote in an election as the Canadian population aged.

In the Canadian federal election of June 25,
The charismatic, intellectual, handsome, single, and fully bilingual Trudeau soon captured the hearts and minds of the nation, and the period leading up to the election saw such intense feelings for him that it was dubbed "Trudeaumania." At public appearances, he was confronted by screaming girls, something never before seen in Canadian politics.
Images of Trudeau standing fast to the rioters were broadcast across the country, and swung the election even further in the Liberals' favour as many English-speaking Canadians believed that he would be the right leader to fight the threat of Quebec separatism.

In the case of an election by acclamation, for instance, the number of registered electors on the lists for that electoral district was included in the total number of registered electors for some elections, but not for others.
Voter turnout figures have been corrected where appropriate: to estimate turnout in these cases, the total number of votes cast in a plural-member electoral district was divided by the number of members elected from that district (see Scarrow 1962).
This percentage rises to 70.9 when the number of electors on the lists is adjusted to account for electors who had moved or died between the enumeration for the 1992 referendum and the election of 1993, for which a separate enumeration was not carried out except in Quebec, as the 1992 electoral lists were reused.

 William Lyon Mackenzie King
Although the Liberals lost the 1930 election, it was to their benefit in the long run.
He recognized that this did not mean forcing all Canadians to espouse one single vision, but accommodating a multitude of differing, and sometimes conflicting, viewpoints.
It was this wisdom and his ability to compromise that allowed King to successfully negotiate the issue of conscription in 1944 and avoid the divisiveness of 1917.
