The template.[edit]

For the record I created this template for "big L" Liberal parties, that meaning parites which use the Liberal name. It's not an ideological template like the conservative one that's similar to this. Although I do support the create of a template for all of the left-wing parties in Canada as well. Sima Yi 03:08, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Move British Columbia to "No representation"[edit]

From British Columbia Liberal Party, "Previously affiliated with the Liberal Party of Canada, the British Columbia Liberal Party has been independent of its federal counterpart since the late 1980s." --PenaltyKillahJw21 22:38, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

Either that (and the same for the similarly independent parties in Ontario, Alberta and Quebec) or maybe change the header to Liberal Parties of Canada? //Essin (talk) 09:45, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
As previously stated, this template was created for parties running under the Liberal name. Their affiliation with the federal party isn't an issue at all. Sima Yi (talk) 09:53, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Then the header is confusing - a reader who doesn't know how the provincial Liberals relate to the federal Liberals will think that they are all part of the same party. I don't know how to clarify the template without making it unnecessarily wordy, however. //Essin (talk) 23:02, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
That's a valid concern, but there's a key flaw in what you're proposing here. The provincial Liberal parties of Ontario, Alberta, Quebec (and maybe others) aren't officially affiliated with the federal party either. I can see why it may be confusing though. The template was under a different and less confusing name when it was created, and I don't know why it was moved without any discussion. Maybe we should start talking about changing it back or maybe splitting the template into two. Sima Yi (talk) 12:05, 10 May 2009 (UTC)


Given that many of the provincial wings (e.g. BC, Alberta) have disaffiliated from the federal party, this should be repurposed to into a ideological template or a template about the parties that are still affiliated ONLY. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 04:15, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Why are Newfoundland and Labrador and Manitoba left off the template? Newfoundlander&Labradorian (talk) 13:28, 29 January 2011 (UTC)
I got interrupted is all. I will fix it. --Kevlar (talkcontribs) 09:42, 1 February 2011 (UTC)

Interim leaders?[edit]

Should interim leaders be listed in the leaders section?Mr. No Funny Nickname (talk) 17:17, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

It couldn't hurt to give them their own little line under the Deputy Leaders, in my opinion. Sima Yi (talk) 05:29, 26 May 2011 (UTC)
