  Sir Charles, Bart. Tupper - LoveToKnow 1911
Shortly before the Canadian Federal elections of February 1887, Sir Charles re-entered the Conservative cabinet as finance minister.
By his efforts the Canadian Pacific railway was enabled to float a loan of $30,000,000, on the strength of which the line was finished several years before the expiration of the contract time.
At the general election in the ensuing June the Conservatives were severely defeated, and Sir Charles Tupper and his colleagues resigned, Sir Wilfrid Laurier becoming premier.

But the chief cause of Laurier's defeat in the general election of 1911 was his proposed RECIPROCITY trade agreement with the US, which would have led to the reciprocal removal or lowering of duties on the so-called "natural" products of farms, forests and fisheries.
The captains of Canadian finance, manufacturing and transport excited the naturally strong Canadian suspicions of American economic intentions and, with their support, the Conservative Opposition under Robert BORDEN convinced the electorate that Canada's separate national economy and imperial trading possibilities were about to be thrown away for economic, and possibly political, absorption by the US.
In the federal election of 11 June 1945, held while thousands of veterans were just beginning to come home, Canadians returned the LIBERAL PARTY to office.

 Albert Henry George Grey Grey - LoveToKnow 1911
However, he won the seat by a large majority at the General Election in 1880 and, after the Reform bill of 1884 had altered the constituency, sat for Tyneside for a few months in 1885-6.
Similarly he was able to celebrate worthily, in the presence of the then Prince of Wales, the acquisition by Quebec of the Plains of Abraham for public purposes, without hurting the susceptibilities of the French-Canadians.
Of these, the federation of the Empire was the first, and he would only contemplate Irish Home Rule as part of a Federal scheme.

The Elections Canada definition of this term is almost poetic: "The place of ordinary residence of a person is the place that has always been, or that has been adopted as, his or her dwelling place, and to which the person intends to return when away from it.
Elections Canada used to need that much time to prepare the voters' list because it was sending teams of enumerators to every home in Canada to update information from the previous general election.
The percentage of election expenses that can be reimbursed to parties has been increased from 22.5 to 60 per cent; the definition of reimbursable election expenses has been broadened to include polling; and the ceiling for expenses eligible for reimbursement has been increased as a result.

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.

 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.

 Peter Black: The election to make Jean happy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Just about all Canadian federal elections since the dawn of Confederation in 1867 have had a central issue, a theme, or, at the very least, a catchy summary of the outcome.
The 1993 election was revenge time for voters as they vented the anger and distaste with the Conservatives that had accumulated since Mulroney took office in 1984.
Then there are the Chretien elections, the aforementioned gimme in 1993, the last one in 1997, and the one that is already under way but will be called officially Sunday (barring some unimaginable snafu, and since Pierre Trudeau is already conveniently deceased, his looming demise is no longer a factor).

 Conservative Party of Canada - TvWiki, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The merger was the culmination of the Canadian "Unite the Right" movement, driven by the desire to present an effective right-wing opposition to the Liberal Party of Canada, to create a new party that would draw support from all parts of Canada and would not split the right-wing vote.
The party is still referred to as "Tory" by the media and retains the tie to the historical Conservative Party of Canada founded in 1854 by Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir George-√Čtienne Cartier by virtue of the fact that the merged entity assumed all assets and liabilities of the Progressive Conservative Party.
Additionally, after the 2004 federal election, Tory Senator Jean-Claude Rivest left the CPC to sit as an independent member of Senate, citing his concerns that the new party was too right-wing and insensitive to Quebec needs and interests.

The 1911 Canadian election brought to an end fifteen years of government by the Liberal Party under Wilfrid Laurier.

His government encountered further controversy through its support for the faulty Ross rifle (which tended to jam in battle and ultimately led to the dismissal of its chief sponsor Sam Hughes, the Minister of Militia and Defence) and there were accusations of war profiteering over the awarding of British munitions contracts.
Consequently at the Paris Peace Conference Borden headed the Canadian delegation; his signature on the Versailles treaty is often deemed to herald Canada's emergence as an autonomous state.
Finally leaving office on 10 July 1920 Borden attended the Washington Naval Disarmament Conference in 1921 as Canadian delegate and served on the League of Nations council in 1930.
