Parties, Elections, and the Future of Canadian PoliticsBook - 2013
On May 2, 2011, as Canadians watched the federal election results roll in and Stephen Harper's Conservatives achieve a majority, it appeared that we were witnessing a major shift in the political landscape. In reality, Canadian politics had been changing for quite some time. This volume provides the first account of the political upheavals of the past two decades and speculates on the future of the country's national party system. By documenting how parties and voters responded to new challenges between 1993 and 2011, this book sheds light on one of the most tumultuous periods in Canadian political history.
