None of the John Shaw listings are even up here. Try, www.ourcampaigns.com don't care for their administrating of members, but many of the facts they have are better than this place.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Gzlfb (talk • contribs) 16:30, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Number doesn't add up
According to this page, in 2008 federal election - they garner a little over 1,000 votes - but according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadian_federal_election,_2008, the LPC garner 7,300 votes - obviously either this one or the other result is incorrect - though Election Canada said 7,300. Either way, someone made a mistake by a wide margin as it seems REDSoC (talk) 03:45, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
I made corrections to the vote that they garner according to the result of the election at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canadia_federal_election,_2008 - please make sure you get the right numbers, not sure what you been getting the other numbers from though —Preceding unsigned comment added by REDSoC (talk • contribs) 03:53, 21 October 2009 (UTC)
The Libertarian Party seems to represent anarchism more then libertarianism, if you look at their policy -they even go as far as abolition of national/provincial park and selling them to private interest and the abolition of taxes, government healthcare and even privatizing schools —Preceding unsigned comment added by Green Liberal (talk • contribs) 22:44, 23 December 2009 (UTC)
Anarchism is defined as absolutely NO government. The Libertarian Party of Canada wants government to be strictly limited to National Defence, Police and the courts, as defined in their Statement of Principles on their web site, www.libertarian.ca. LibertarianCFO (talk) 18:25, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
I'm going to change the "ideology" from "libertarianism", which has come to be utterly meaningless, to "minarchism". I would also like to ask if perhaps the "political position" can be changed to something like "right-libertarianism" or at least "libertarian", since "right-wing" does not even remotely do justice in describing the party's politics.

The article states that the LPC is a federal political party, so it will never form a provincial government. Why has this been added to the infobox? I propose to remove it. Comments? Ground Zero | t 01:09, 22 November 2016 (UTC)
"In the 2015 federal election, the party fielded 72 candidates and solidified their position as the 6th federal party in Canada. With growth over 500% from the 2011 elections, the party is the fastest growing party."
- Since its vote totals in 1979, it has grown about 233%.
- Since it's (apparent) first election run in 1984, the Green Party of Canada has increased its vote totals almost 2250%. It has always got more votes that the Libertarian party in every federal election since.
- While Green Party candidates had, I think, 9 candidates running in 2015 (Green Party of Canada candidates, 2015 Canadian federal election), the Libertarian party had only 3, one of which Lauren Southern, was/is a staunch Donald Trump supporter and supports his anti-immigrant views. The LPC seems to ignore this.
