In Canada we have three main parties. Conservatives (right), Liberal (left of centre) and NDP (left).
The Liberals had several overwhelming majorities despite the left competition from the NDP who have been a party for over 50+ years now (give or take anyway).
Gotta fix that.
In Canada we have three main parties. Conservatives (right (rarely) or Liberal), Liberal (left of centre to left) and NDP (far left (socialist/pro-union) but not communist). A little different in each province. In Ontario, there is no real difference between the Conservatives (Tories) and the Liberals (Grits) whom are the government.
Federally, the parties are best described these days as - Conservatives (Western Canada centric (Alberta)), Liberal (barely exist) and NDP (Quebec centric).
The big difference between the Liberals and the NDP (New Democratic Party) is an almost consistent one. The Liberals tend to be general left of centre. The NDP tend more to the social left, but honestly, it's not the same party it was when it began. The NDP never split the vote federally, due mostly to the one and only NDP Ontario government. It was a bad one (tanked the economy) and left Ontario saying not again... until recently... maybe. 20 years can change things... or not. The Liberals long had a strong power base in both Ontario and Quebec. Both are the most populated provinces and thus, the most politically powerful on voting in governments as the seats for MPs are arranged.
Three parties... can mess things up or keep things balanced. Just a matter of what you want to see happen or how many seats one party has to swing things.
