Untitled[edit]

I will add a province-by-province result to this page. Pellaken 13:22, 28 Jan 2004 (UTC)

Shouldn't Quebec be a light blue, since the Bloc won two more seats than the Libs?

Colours[edit]

I've made some changes to the colour scheme, and would like to know what people think before I carry it back to previous years. The old PC Party colour is very dark, and it makes the text difficult to read.

old Progressive Conservative colour: mediumslateblue

I've changed it to a lighter colour:

new Progressive Conservative colour: powderblue

I've also changed the Bloc Quebecois colour in order to make it more distinct from the new PC colour:

old Bloc Québécois colour: lightskyblue
new Bloc Québécois colour: turquoise

I've also changed the Canadian Action Party from powderblue - a colour that has nothing in particular to do with that party - to

red

.

Any objections?

August 9 Changes[edit]

So The Tom has now changed the colours back on several of the pages, and reinserted 'Party of Canada' or 'Party' after the party names. What do people think of this? I don't want to get into a revert war, so I'll pose the questions here. I think my colour combo is easier to read, particlaurly when it comes to the Communist Party's indianred in Tom's colour scheme, which is very difficult to read. I'll let others make that decision, though. I really don't think, however, that adding 'Party of Canada' after each party's name adds anything beyond more clutter to already-crowded tables. Is anyone with me on this? The full names of the parties are always available by clicking on the short form and going to the party's article. Comments please? Kevintoronto 15:32, 10 Aug 2004 (UTC)

So there was no response from the Tom, I've changed the names back to the short form so that there is consistency back to 1867. I'm going to do the colours some time when I have a moment. Kevintoronto 15:45, 15 Sep 2004 (UTC)

September 24, 2004 changes[edit]

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 22:39, 24 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Results table[edit]

The tables have been converted to the new format that was developed by consensus at Talk:Canadian federal election results since 1867 over a period of months. Eventually all federal elecitons tables will be converted to this format. See Talk:Canadian federal election, 2004 for more explanation. Kevintoronto 19:14, 30 Mar 2005 (UTC)

May 13, 2006 changes[edit]

I have changed simply the top row of the page, where it says "hose of commons", I changed it to its proper spelling of "House of commons"
