Overview Of The Canadian Political Scene
On May 2, 2011, Prime Minister Stephen Harper won a majority government in Canada. I thought I'd like to do a piece on the journey of a party which seems has gone FULL CIRCLE , and the period of time it took to bring it about. As the saying goes, once upon a time, and in a country just north of the great USofA there was in Canada a Conservative majority government. It's important to understand as one considers the political spectrum of parties, things of the same name may have different meaning from country to country. To explain the United States of America has the Republican Party which are known to be conservatives. One should not consider the Conservative Party of Canada as sharing exactly the same values as the U.S. Republicans.
