PARTIES

Political parties hold a great deal of power in the Canadian system of government. Indeed, the entire Canadian parliamentary system presumes the existence of parties and would not be able to function without them.

As we learned in the Parliamentary System chapter, it’s the party with the most seats in the Canadian House of Commons that forms the Government of Canada and gets to pick the prime minister and his cabinet. The party with the second-largest number of seats forms the Official Opposition. Political parties in Canada are all organized the same fashion, which is to say, very hierarchically.

There’s always a single “leader” at the top who is basically boss of the party. The leader formulates party policy and determines where his party stands on the issues of the day, and all party members below are expected to respectfully support him. In federal eletions, party leaders run as candidates for prime minister.
