  New Democratic Party - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
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.

 thetyee.ca Looks Bleak for Third Parties   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
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.

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.

Democrats subscribe to the Brezhnev doctrine: “What we have, we hold.” Their interpretation of elections they win by a plurality is that they have a mandate for Ruth Bader Ginsburg; their interpretation of elections they lose is that this means they get to block all Republican nominees.
