    ELECTIONS
    • The two largest political parties in Canada are Conservative Party and Liberal.
    • In order to vote in Canada, one must be at least 18 years old on election day along with being a Canadian citizen and choosing a political party.
    • The 2008 Canadian federal election (more formally, the 40th Canadian General Election) was held on Tuesday, October 14, 2008 to elect members to the Canadian House of Commons of the 40th Canadian Parliament after the previous parliament had been dissolved by the Governor General on September 7, 2008. The election yielded a minority government under the Conservative Party of Canada, led by the incumbent Prime Minister, Stephen Harper.
    The election call resulted in the cancellation of four federal by-elections that had been scheduled to occur in September.

  • ECONOMICS
    Polls have suggested that the economy is the major issue going into this election, especially with the resulting high price of gas, along with rising prices of other goods and services, such as food, and the possible impact the current financial crisis may have on Canada. Some experts say that Canada has just narrowly dodged a recession, although the economy is in its worst shape since 1991.
  • Oh Canada…What Else?
    Official EnglishOfficial French
    O Canada! Ô Canada!
    Our home and native land! Terre de nosaïeux,
    True patriot love in all thy sons command. Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
    With glowing hearts we see thee rise, Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
    The True North strong and free! Il sait porter la croix!
    From far and wide, Ton histoire est une épopée
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. Des plus brillants exploits.
    God keep our land glorious and free! Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
