Online Party of Canada[edit]

This party is garnering quite a bit of attention: http://www.onlineparty.ca/ http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/October2010/21/c4423.html http://www.digital-copyright.ca/node/5213 http://thenextweb.com/ca/2010/10/03/online-party-of-canada-wants-to-shake-up-democracy/ http://www.nexttree.ca/blog/the-online-party-of-canada-launches-website-with-nexttree/ http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Internet+based+political+party+trying+make+splash/3717138/story.html http://walkersunknownthoughts.blogspot.com/2010/10/online-party-of-canada-further-analysis.html http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/Online-Party-Canada-Radically-Different-Political-Organization-has-Launched-Ambitious-1328653.htm http://www.frommybottomstep.com/2010/09/13/the-online-party-of-canada/ http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_pwwi/is_201010/ai_n55446879/

There are countless articles on google, just type in "Online Party of Canada" - according to one of the articles, they already have near 500 members (only need 250 members to register) so I'm not sure how close they are to be register. I'm going to put OPC under "unregister party believe to be active in recent years". 74.216.8.97 (talk) 18:32, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Do not remove Online Party of Canada from the list of "unregister party believe to be active" without providing reasons. I have provided sources as my reason for including them in the list - and I expect whoever removing OPC to do the same (provide reason why they are to be remove). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.216.8.95 (talk) 04:24, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Wow, I did not see these sources before now. I do not know why the article Online Party of Canada does not exist by now. Ok, I willing to bite that this party exists and is real. Before now, I had not seen any sources. I'll get to work on creating a page and I won't keep removing it. Outback the koala (talk) 04:55, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
Oh ok no problem then, there are many more sources available on the web for OPC - I just didn't list them all.74.216.8.95 (talk) 05:51, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

All this shows is that some dude is trying to start a party. It doesn't show notability. In-line citations are required. Me-123567-Me (talk) 02:14, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

I do not know how to do in-line citations so you'll have to show me how. You can in-line citations for me if you want. Google news isn't the only source of information - hence the sources that I have provided does prove notability from various sources (especially from the Vancouver Sun and others). You shouldn't remove other people's work without providing sufficient reason why you did so.74.216.37.246 (talk) 03:02, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

WP:CITE - In line citations are your friend. To add them in the basic sense next to Online Party of Canada on the list, you would add, for example <ref>http://examplelink.com/mylink/icareaboutpolitics</ref>. If you want to get fancier check out Template:Cite web. Me-123567-Me (talk) 03:49, 12 January 2011 (UTC)

The link for Online Party of Canada currently goes off of Wikipedia to their official page. It's the only link to do so. There seems to be no Wikipedia article on them. Darkpoet (talk) 12:12, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Ideology mistakes[edit]

First of all the Conservative Party of Canada isn't "conservative-leaning", it IS conservative. As a matter of fact neo-conservatism has actually long been an influential school of thought with the party leadership and rank and file.

Secondly the Liberal Party of Canada may have centre-left tendencies at times, it has a centre-left faction, but it is NOT "left of centre". That means Leftwing!

That is purely subjective: it depends on how you define the centre. In Toronto, the Liberals may be centre-left, but in the West they are left of centre (especially recently they have moved left). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 137.207.232.41 (talk) 18:46, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Most Communist MPs[edit]

This article suggests there were 3 Communist MPs in 1945 . Dorise Nielsen had been elected in 1940, Fred Rose in 1942. Who was the third? Only Rose was reelected that year. Geoff K. (talk) 00:37, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
