Party System (1245 words)
Canadian political parties aim to promote objectives compatible with liberal-democratic values and hope to obtain their ends by achieving power through constitutional means within a parliamentary system of government.
The constitutions of the older federal parties protect bicultural and regional interests (eg, that of the Liberals provides for equal francophone and anglophone representation; the NDP selects an associate president and an associate secretary from a cultural group not represented by the president and secretary).
One primary task of both provincial and federal parties is to choose the party leader (in effect the party's candidate for premier or prime minister) and then secure the election of a sufficient number of party supporters.
Canadian federal election, 2004 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2443 words)
The Canadian federal election, 2004 (more formally, the 38th general election), was held on June 28, 2004 to elect members of the Canadian House of Commons.
On election day, polling times were arranged to allow results from most provinces to be announced more or less simultaneously, with the exception of Atlantic Canada, whose results were known before the close of polling in other provinces.
Although on the eve of the election the party was polling slightly ahead of the Liberals everywhere west of Quebec, it had dropped in support, polling behind or an par with Liberals everywhere except Alberta and British Columbia, where it held onto its traditional support.
