“It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried.” – Sir Winston Churchill
Federal Party Politics in Canada is an exciting and dangerous sport. Ask the ex-leaders of the major parties, many who left with figurative knives planted in their backs by their supposed friends.
The aim of political parties is to represent different viewpoints among the electorate. Whether or not the system does this well is open to debate. There are groups which claim it does not. Other groups claim it does. One thing that nearly all groups in Canada agree upon is that the Canadian system is far superior to the American system.
