Nice. I'll enjoy hearing how these parties were evolved or created. Big task though.

1908: New Party vs Liberal vs. Socialist Labour

The New Party is a coalition of anti-socialist elements.

The Liberal Party is a centrist party, but is pro-free-trade.

Socialist Labour is a left-wing formed mainly from some trade unions.

1916: New Party vs. Liberal vs. Socialist

Some moderate members of the Socialist Labour party joins the Liberal Party and some more radical members form the Communist Party.

1920: Anti-Socialist Front vs. Socialist vs. Communist

1924: Conservative vs. Liberal vs. Socialist vs. Communist

With a new leader, the New Party change its name to the Conservative Party.

1932: Coalition vs. Communist vs. National Front

Due to a polarisation of some parties and especially with the formation of the fascist National Front, the Conservatives and Liberals enters in a Grand Coalition.

1945: Social Credit vs. Popular Front vs. Liberal

After the war and with a new leader, many members of the Conservatives are going to the new Social Credit Party. The left is united with the Popular Front.

It's kind of conceivable--weren't the Liberals in power in Canada for a long stretch of time in the middle of the 20th century?

For the federal parliament, the Liberals were in power from long periods of time due to the lack of a strong opposition or a divided opposition.

And yes, it's possible to be in power for a very long time in provincial politics in Canada:

In Alberta, ALL of the governing parties were only in power during one era, only to return in the wilderness after that. Basically, Alberta is a dominant party state, so the opposition don't have many seats.

1905-1921 Alberta Liberal Party

1921-1935 United Farmers of Alberta

1935-1971 Social Credit Party of Alberta

1971-present Alberta Progressive Conservatives

In British Columbia, the Social Credit Party was in power from 1952 to 1972 and from 1975 to 1991. Ironically, many of the former members of the Social Credit Party now are with the BC Liberals.

In Ontario, the Progressive Conservatives were in power nonstop from 1943 to 1985.

In Québec, the Liberals were in power nonstop from 1897 to 1935.
