But 1993 was a interesting election! Perhaps I will work on it :D

And don't forget Mel Hurtig's National Party (they had some neat ideas, and were well promoted, despite not getting a seat) and the Natural Law Party (a popular protest vote in many countries in the '90's).

It was one of the most crucial elections Canada never had

In 80's Trudeau father (Quebecois) as Liberal Canadian  PM made a federal equal policy in response of 1980 Quebec referendum

Brian Mulroney last PM from the Conservatives was a Quebecer, elected in Charlevoix (north of Quebec) but from anglophone descent, he believed in a constitutionnal equal reform

The reform was made to grant Quebec a real status, but anglophones failed it

Quebec gone mad and independentism rised to incredible numbers in Quebec while it was almost dead before.

Hence, the Minister of Justice of Canada, Lucien Bouchard, resigned and became of one the greatest sovereignist ruler.

He launched the Bloc Quebecois which shapped completely Quebec. The Bloc Québécois took 50,6% of the vote in 1993 in Quebec and 54 seats on 75.

On the other hand, anglophones of the West secessionned from Cons and made the Reform Party with a Whip named STEVEN HARPER.

Finally, there has been a close race between Campbell and someone named JEAN CHAREST (who later been PM of Quebec for the Liberals from 2003 to 2012) to suceed Mulroney future.

This election pushed another Liberal at power. A quebecer too (a lot of Quebecers were rulers of main parties in 90s). Jean Chrétien.

His election dropped sovereignism from 60 to 50%

At the same time the PM of Quebec, Robert Bourassa despite being Liberal said a famous sentence after seeing Quebec rejected for constitutionnal agreements

 

"Mister the President, Canada has to understand, wathever we do wathever we want, Quebec is a distinct society, able to do his future and free of his own market"

The independentists in the other side of the house were in love with that sentence

A year after in 1994 the sovereignists win Quebec election with a landslide

And all come to the 1995 referendum.

So 1993 was the most crucial election of recent Canada history.

Don't worry, if I do make the scenario. I'll be sure to include as many parties as possible.
