Canadian federal election, 2006: Information from Answers.com (3701 words)
The 2006 Canadian federal election (more formally, the 39th General Election) was held on January 23, 2006, to elect members of the 39th Parliament of the Canadian House of Commons.
The election resulted in a minority government led by the Conservative Party with Stephen Harper becoming the 22nd Prime Minister of Canada; this is Canada's smallest minority government since Confederation, in terms of the percentage of seats held by the governing party.
This general election elected members for the House of Commons, indirectly determining the prime minister and cabinet, as the government will be formed by the political party or coalition of parties that the governor general determines is best able to command the confidence of the House (usually the one with the most elected members).
