  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.

 Canadian federal election, 1949 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Canadian federal election of 1949 was held on June 27 to elect members of the 21st Parliament of the Canadian House of Commons.
It was the first election in Canada in almost thirty years in which the Liberal Party of Canada was not led by William Lyon Mackenzie King.
Smaller parties, such as the social democratic Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, and Social Credit, a party that advocated monetary reform, lost support to the Liberals, and to a lesser extent, the Conservatives.

 Wikipedia: Canadian federal election, 1917 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 1917 Canadian federal election (sometimes referred to as the khaki election) was held on December 17, 1917, to elect members of the 13th Parliament of the Canadian House of Commons.
Described by historian Michael Bliss as the "most bitter election in Canadian history", it was fought mainly over the issue of conscription (see Conscription Crisis of 1917).
The election resulted in Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden's Unionist government elected with a strong majority, and the largest percent share of the popular vote for a single party in Canadian history.

Federalism is a structure of government that offers the benefits of political and economic union combined with local autonomy.
In fact, one of the distinguishing characteristics of the Canadian federation is its marriage of cultural duality with political unity.
The Canadian federation officially came into being on July 1, 1867, with the union of four provinces: Quebec and Ontario (previously united as the Province of Canada), Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.

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 modest decline in turn.

The 1920 general election, conducted in the aftermath of the First World War, saw a plethora of upstart political parties, many of which were composed of war veterans.
The 1924 general election also saw the emergence of the Provincial Party, an amalgam of disgruntled Tories and the United Farmers of B.C. Three seats were won by the new party, which disappeared before the next contest, although MLA G.A. Walkem won re-election as a Conservative.
It is evident that relatively few cnadidates win election to the legislature under minor party banners, and that many of those who do had earlier won their seats with a different, and often major, party.

By 1935, 10 percent of Canadians were dependent on some form of financial relief, and workers from government-sponsored relief camps were rioting in Regina over wages and working conditions.

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.

But Canadians, distressed by nine years of government under Conservative Brian Mulroney, turned to the Liberals in the 1993 general election and, as a result, only nine New Democrat Members of Parliament were elected, three less than that required for official party status in the House of Commons.

 Conservative Party of Canada - TvWiki, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: )
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-Étienne 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.

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.

There is no evidence in the Canadian election survey of voters punishing the Liberals for their shift to the right (as exemplified by cuts to social programs in order to eliminate the deficit).
Perhaps the tight focus on the 1997 election was achieved at some cost to a fuller and more probing examination of the historical context for the election.
It’s not clear enough, for instance, whether this election survey and the analyzes that form the core arguments of this book represent a continuation and confirmation of the claims of previous studies, or a significant departure therefrom.
