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.

 Canada's 2006 Election: A Chilling Echo of Bush's Republicans
In the 2006 election most of the original Reform-Alliance agenda which is still the basis of the current Conservative Party was almost entirely removed from their election platform--but there is no reason to believe that the party has actually turned its back on its original raison d'etre.
In the 2006 election campaign the Conservatives were evasive and unclear on the matter of the CBC, largely because they're fully aware of the broad public support for this institution.
Probably a major objective of a majority Conservative government will be to eliminate the federal taxpayer subsidy to political parties of a $1.75 per vote, per year, and to replace this with unlimited "donations" from corporations--just as in their ideological homeland, the land of the stars and stripes.

 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.
