Encyclopedia > Canadian federal election, 1891


Politics of Canada


The 1891 Canadian federal election was won by the Conservative Party of Sir John A. Macdonald. Macdonald led a conservative campaign emphasizing stability, and retained the Conservatives' majority in the House of Commons. Macdonald died a few months after the election.


John Abbott succeeded Macdonald as Conservative leader and Prime Minister. Abbott's most famous political comment was "I hate politics."


This was Wilfrid Laurier's first election as leader of the Liberals. Although he lost this election, he returned in 1896 to win a solid majority.


The main issue of the 1891 campaign was Macdonald's National Policy, a policy of protective tariffs. The Liberals supported United States.

Elections (1397 words)
Canadian elections are held under a process that reflects well-understood principles and is a part of the country's political culture.
The first few federal elections were held under disparate provincial laws, but in the 1870s the first national election provisions were enacted, laying the foundations for the present system.
While elections and changes in either the prime minister or the government as a whole may be related to each other, there is no necessary connection between elections and changes in the executive.
