Canadian politics in general is said to be more "left-leaning" than American politics because of the generally accepted socialist principles of health care, employment insurance and other government-administered policies with social impact.
The Conservatives were the country's first ruling party, with the election of Sir John A. Macdonald in 1867, although in the late1800s, the party was known as the "Liberal-Conservative Party." Considered to be on the political right-of-centre of Canadian politics.
Elections Canada defines a third party as "a person or group, other than a candidate, registered party or electoral district association of a registered party," and requires that they be registered if they spend $500 or more in election advertising expenses.
