Written by the foremost authorities, The Canadian Federal Election of 2015 provides a complete investigation of the election.
A comprehensive analysis of all aspects of the campaigns and the election outcome, these chapters written by leading academics examine the strategies, successes, and failures of the major political parties. Electoral analysts present authoritative studies of the Conservatives (Faron Ellis and Paul Wells), the Liberals (Brooke Jeffrey), the New Democrats (David McGrane), the Bloc Quebecois (Eric Belanger and Richard Nadeau), and the Green Party (Susan Harada).
Also featured in this volume are chapters on the nature of local campaigning (Allan Thompson), polls (David Coletto), the campaign in the media (Mary Francoli, Josh Greenberg and Christopher Waddell), the debates (Andre Turcotte), and women in politics (Brenda O’Neill and Melanee Thomas). The book concludes with a detailed analysis of voting behaviour in 2015 (Harold Clarke, Marianne Stewart and Tom Scotto) and an assessment of the Stephen Harper dynasty (Jon H. Pammett and Lawrence LeDuc). Appendices contain all of the election results.
