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.
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.
Each general election is unique, for while the basic principles on which elections are conducted have varied remarkably little since the beginning, the personnel involved and the issues fought over are never entirely the same.
