In order for a Federal political party to be considered a federal party and permitted to run in the Canadian Federal elections, this party must have one member running in each Territory or Province, during the election.
Federal politics has in many points slid backwards in times, which goes back to ideologies that were created of the absolute rule from medieval times, when the rulers would carry out whatever actions they wish, without any accountability to the people.
Also, if any federal political party is found to be guilty of bullying, intimidating, censoring, or oppressing a citizen of Canada and denying that person a right to speak out, then leaders of that party must be held responsible for their members’ actions, in a court of law.

The conundrum is that on the one hand current immigration selection rules favour individuals with education and work experience while on the other, newcomers often face insurmountable hurdles to have their foreign credentials recognized to become employed in their vocation.

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.

 Canadian Elections (March 2, 2006)
The recent Canadian federal elections should be an ominous warning to the Americans who have recently felt that fleeing to Canada might be a good alternative to living under the Bush Regime.
Canadian voters perceive the allegedly leftist (actually under the control of labor unions for multinationals) NDP as too socialist, so they were propagandized into voting Conservative as an alternative to political corruption (as if Conservative politicians weren't all corporate pimps).
At least in the way it played out in Canadian mass media, it seemed to be an election where the choices were between a corrupt Liberal Government and the Conservatives, who had a Quayle-like candidate for Prime Minister, and also made a campaign promise to reduce sales taxes.

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.
John Porter (1965) noted that Canadian political and economic leaders, despite their cries for national unity in the face of the persistent regionalism which characterized the Canadian political system, focused on themes that divided the electorate to maintain their positions as elites.

The opening report was delivered by Keith Jones, national secretary of the Canadian SEP and a member of the international editorial board of the WSWS.
Jones began by observing that the Canadian elections were taking place in the context both of the unprecedented upsurge of US imperialism and of an ongoing radicalization of wide layers of the population.
Behind this calculation, Jones explained, was concern on the part of the Canadian bourgeoisie that the invasion of Iraq would undermine the multilateral institutions which have long been its preferred strategy in a world dominated by greater powers.

Ultimately, Canadian Muslims are as divided as the rest of Canadian voters between the pluralism of the Liberal Party, the championing of traditional values by the Conservative Party and the third-world and pro-Palestinian militancy of the New Democrats.
The Canadian Arab Federation (CFA) and CAIR-CAN, authors of a booklet advising Muslims on how to avoid collaborating with Canadian counter-terrorism investigations, met last April with Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Anne McLellan to present her their recommendations for the revision of the anti-terror law.

The election resulted in a minority government led by the Conservative Party with Stephen Harper becoming the 22nd Prime Minister of Canada.
The Liberals opted to hold any major announcements until after the Christmas holidays; as a result, Harper dominated media coverage for the first weeks of the campaign and was able to define his platform and insulate it from expected Liberal attacks.
On December 27, 2005, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police announced it was investigating allegations that Liberal Finance Minister Ralph Goodale's office had engaged in insider trading before making an important announcement on the taxation of income trusts.
