Wow, this presented really badly. Why not just use headers and bullets and stuff? Right now as it is if someone wants to add a few paragraphs on a party, they have to cram it into a table. Also, what's with the really bad writing? Not French, not English, just gibberish. Well, I fixed some, at least. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:39, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I'm not really tied to the Conservative Party one, but it doesn't make sense now. Grammatical or otherwise. --Kels 04:17, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Hey, I made a minor edit to 'conservative party' to improve readability. No issues with the content. Hope its kosher.Dorianin (talk) 02:04, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Conservative/PC[edit]

Okay, this doesn't make sense to me. "It's OK to be confused with the Progressive Conservative Party (The federal one, not the provincial one), which was effectively devoured by the Social Credit Reform Canadian Alliance Party, which is essentially the same party later on." First of all, I don't get the "It's OK to be confused" part, since the former Reform Party did change the party name and all from PC to Conservative. The "essentially the same party" bit doesn't make sense either, since it was a drastically changed party after the takeover. Any thoughts? --Kels 04:49, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Uh...it's no better now. The Canadian Alliance, which was a rebranding of the Reform Party, which in turn was a rebranding of the SoCreds in Alberta, took over the federal Progressive Conservatives when they were down on their luck. The way it's worded now makes it look like they were all victims of being swallowed up when it was only the PC's in reality. --Kels 05:13, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
If Kxxxx wrote it, feel free to overwrite. His English/Canadian is at best a seventh language. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:35, 20 May 2009 (UTC)


Party Size Overhaul?[edit]

The page for parties in the UK separates parties with more seats from parties with fewer seats, but the definition of large and small parties here just seems to be whether it has seats or not. Maybe it'd be a good idea to put the Green Party and PPC into a new minor parties section? KGlife (talk) 21:15, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
