Canada's Political Parties
Today, we're going to be looking at the major Political Parties in Canada to try and learn more about the upcoming elections. This morning, we learned that Political Parties are groups of like-minded politicians. In Canada, there are 3 primary parties, three secondary parties, and many tertiary parties (parties that don't win seats in Parliament). We're going to explore the three major parties and one secondary party.
• What is the party’s slogan and/or key messages?
• Who is the party leader?
• What are the party’s major ideas?
• What actions are they promising to take?
• Who seems to be the target audience of the party?
• What is the party’s vision for Canada?
You might be wondering, "Mr. Buhler, where can I go to learn more information about the parties?" Great question! You could consider looking at the Party Websites.
Sometimes, the party websites can be a bit confusing. It can be hard to figure out just what is going on. So a group called Pollenize has helped simplify things for us!
