Next Tuesday, as Canadians, we will choose who will govern us for the next few years and how that government will be shaped.
For the past 30 months, the Conservatives under Stephen Harper have governed with a minority of
members. Prior to that, the Liberal party under the leadership of Paul Martin governed with a minority
for 18 months.
From September, 1984 through to December, 2004, first Brian Mulroney and then Jean Chrétien led the country with majority governments.
