The Canadian General Election of 2000

Overview

Many saw it as a gamble for Jean Chretien: against the advice of party members, he called an early election. But the gamble paid off, and the Liberal Party cruised to their third straight majority government.

The Canadian General Election of 2000 is the authoritative study of the campaign and election. As with previous volumes in the Canadian General Election series, the 2000 edition includes analyses of:

  • the campaigns of all five major parties
  • the roles of the print and electronic media, including the internet
  • the pre-election polls
  • voting behaviour across the country

Articles are contributed by some of the most recognizable political writers, commentators, and pollsters, including: Edward Greenspon., Stephen Clarkson, Faron Ellis, Alan Whitehorn, Peter Woolstencroft, Andre Bernard, Paul Attallah, Mary McGuire, Janice Neil, Michael Marzolini, and Andre Turcotte.
