Canadian democracy

            In a country as vast and as culturally diverse as Canada, many different political opinions may be found stretched across the .
             country. From the affluent neighborhoods of West Vancouver to the small fishing towns located on the East Coast of Newfoundland, political .
             opinions and affiliations range from the left wing to the right wing. To represent these varying political views, Canada has four official .
             national political parties to choose from the Liberals (who are currently in power), the Progressive Conservatives, the New Democrats, and .
             the Reform Party. What is particularly interesting is that none of the latter three parties composes Her Majesty's Official Opposition in the .
             House of Commons. The Bloc Quebecois, a Quebec separatist party who only ran candidates in the province of Quebec in the last federal .
             election in 1993, won 54 seats in that province, and claimed the title of Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition over the Reform Party, who garnered .
             only 52 seats. Because the Bloc ran candidates only in Quebec, it would be difficult to think of them being a national political party, .
             although they hold a significant number of seats in the national legislature. This paper will examine the significant early history of .
             Canada's four main national political parties, and then we will analyze their current state, referring to recent major political .
             victories/disasters, and the comparison of major economic policy standpoints, which will ultimately lead to a prediction of which party will .
             win the next federal election in Canada. .
             Starting on the far left, there is the New Democratic Party of Canada. Today's modern New Democratic Party was originally called the .
             Co-operative Commonwealth Federation (CCF), and was founded in 1932. Originally led by a man by the name of James Shaver Woodsworth, the CCF .
             was formed by several radical farming groups who found out that they had more similarities with each other than just their destitution.
