 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.

 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.

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.
However, these victories were not all that spectacular; a perusal of the distribution of parliamentary seats after the elections of 1957, 1958, 1962, and 1963 reveal a momentary "blip" in electoral support for the Conservatives which peaked in 1958.

Things took time to develop, but by 1946 the Canadian federal government was looking at national hospital care programs and President Truman had sent a bill creating a publically funded health services plan to the congress.
