  New Democratic Party - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Over three election cycles, under the leadership of Audrey McLaughlin (1989-1995) — the first woman to be leader of a national political party in Parliament — in the first, and Alexa McDonough (1995-2003) over the next two, the party underwent a marked decline in popularity, a modest resurgence, and a slight further decline.
Layton, a former Toronto city councillor, was elected at the party's leadership election in Toronto on January 25, 2003, defeating his nearest rival, longtime MP Bill Blaikie, on the first ballot with 53.5% of the vote.
Since then, the federal NDP is not integrated with a provincial party in that province; instead, it has a section, the Nouveau Parti démocratique-Section Québec (http://www.npd.qc.ca), whose activities in the province are limited to the federal level, whereas on the provincial level its members are individually free to support or adhere to any party.

 Election Resources on the Internet: Federal Elections in Canada - Elections to the House of Commons
In the ensuing January 23, 2006 general election, the Liberals were defeated by the Conservatives, who emerged as the largest party in the House of Commons, although well short of an absolute majority.
The Reform Party (which became the Canadian Alliance in 2000) displaced the Progressive Conservatives as the major right-wing force at the federal level, but the party was unable to mount an effective challenge to the Liberals, who dominated Canadian federal politics from 1993 to 2006.
Between 1962 and 1980, eight federal elections were held in Canada, five of which (1962, 1963, 1965, 1972 and 1979) resulted in minority governments, as no party won an absolute majority of seats in the House of Commons.

 Do Canadians Trust Themselves?: The 2006 Federal Election by John von Heyking
Canadians are in an election campaign a mere seventeen months after their last one.
Americans will be interested in what impact the election has on Canada’s commitment to North American security, the war on terror, and energy security, not to mention its impact on trade between the two countries, which is the largest bi-national trading relationship in the world.
For instance, before the election the prime minister threatened to retaliate against U.S. softwood lumber duties by slapping export duties on Alberta oil and gas, which would increase U.S. reliance on Saudi and Venezuelan oil, and increase pressure to drill for oil and gas in environmentally sensitive Alaskan wild lands.

The election studies are designed to present data on Americans' social backgrounds, enduring political predispositions, social and political values, perceptions and evaluations of groups and candidates, opinions on questions of public policy, and participation in political life.
The 1980 Election Study is comprised of several integrated survey data collections occurring at strategically chosen periods in the course of the election year, along with vote validation and contextual data.
Interviews were conducted in-person prior to the 1984 election, and in the post-election wave, half of the respondents were randomly assigned to be reinterviewed in person, and the other half to be reinterviewed by telephone using a shortened version of the questionnaire.

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.

It would be a stretch to call the election of 1921 a critical election since five years later the Progressives were able to elect only 20 MPs, and by the end of the decade, their national organization was moribund.
Other "slightly less than critical elections" and the election of 1993: Until 1993, Canadian federal elections tended to work in favor of the Liberals because of the party's ability to campaign, win, and satisfy the voters of Ontario and Quebec, in which two-thirds of the population lived.
Rather, as Wrong (1958) argues in his analysis of Conservative ascendancy, the Tory victories were due largely to the political smarts of its leader, John Diefenbaker, who promised to stock his Cabinet with members from Quebec if the Province "delivered" votes for the Party and the feelings of patriotism he aroused in the electorate.

 Canadian federal election, 1993 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Canadian federal election of 1993 (officially, the 35th general election) was held on October 25 of that year to elect members of the 35th Parliament of the Canadian House of Commons.
The 1988 election had been almost wholly focused on the issue of the Free Trade Agreement with the United States, and similarly, the 1993 election was preceded by the agreement on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
This election, like all previous Canadian elections, was conducted under a single-member plurality (or first past the post) system in which the country was carved into 295 electoral districts, or ridings, with each one electing one representative to the House of Commons.

It is one of the ironies of Canadian federal politics that the conservatisms of English Canada and Quebec have, after 1896, largely worked against each other, inducing a "progressive" drive in both parts of the country.
This virtually guaranteed that Quebec would continue to vote for the Liberal Party at the federal level, at a time when it was possible that conflicts might have arisen between the deep-rooted social conservatism of Quebec, and the province's desire to continue voting for the Liberals.
In the 2000 federal election, the BQ won 38 seats, with the Canadian Alliance (which had emerged out of the broadening of the Reform Party) winning 66 seats.

 Elections Canada On-Line | Past Elections
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.

She was a longtime school trustee in Winnipeg and was an unsuccessful Liberal candidate in a previous provincial election.
It was perhaps disenchantment with the Liberals arising from the UN vote that sparked the heated, often ugly campaign rhetoric in pursuit of Jewish votes, Silverstone said.

A new Leger marketing survey of Canadian federal party standings has shown the first signs of real movement in the complex mind of the cross-Canada democratic electorate since the start of the summer that is just ending.
But Liberal Prime Minister Paul Martin did seem to be putting on a not bad TV act as a stand-up Canadian leader in the global village, over the September 6—11 period when the Leger survey was taken.
And recent elections in both Germany and New Zealand have shown Canadians how a reformed electoral system featuring proportional representation would probably never give the Liberals or anyone else a majority government in Canada again.

 ESR | June 21, 2004 | The dilemma of Canada and Québec
In this fifth week of the federal election campaign in Canada, this article intends to look at some of the dilemmas of the Quebec fact in Canadian politics.
It was virtually a direct consequence of the failure of the Charlottetown Agreements that the Bloc Quebecois -- under the leadership of Lucien Bouchard, Mulroney's former Quebec lieutenant -- arose to contest the federal election of 1993 (running candidates only in Quebec), and the Parti Quebecois won the Quebec provincial election of 1994.
It could be argued that Québécois nationalists will have to re-evaluate their relationships to TROC, to North American technological civilization, to their own traditionalist past, and to the rapidly-increasing Third World immigration into Québec, if they are indeed seriously interested in their survival as a nation and a people over many further centuries.

The end of the second party system was preceded by the Diefenbaker Tory landslide of 1958, followed by Dief's self-destruction in 1962-63 and a third national party system under the Pearson and Trudeau Liberals.
The end of this phase was in turn preceded by the apparent triumph of the Mulroney Tories with two successive majority governments in 1984 and 1988, followed by their near-total demise in 1993 and yet another party system with four fragmented opposition parties and dominant Liberal rule under Chrétien.
The Diefenbaker Tories in 1958 formed an alliance with the provincial Union Nationale of Maurice Duplessis and took 50 of 75 Quebec seats.
