We now have consistent colour-coding of the Conservative Party (historical) and the Progressive Conservative Party from 1867-2000. The "powderblue" should make the data legible on most if not all monitors, unlike the previous colour, which was almost the same colour as the text on both monitors that I use. I really hope that we won't have someone go in and randomly change a few years' elections to different colours and mess up this consistency. After 2000, there is no need to adjust colours, I think, since the new Conservative Party is the result of a merger, and therefore warrants a new colour. Kevintoronto 22:37, 24 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Data errors[edit]

In the "results by province" table, Ontario is shown with 101 + 1 + 1 = 101 seats. That doesn't add up. I haven't checked other sources to see where the error might be.
