Scope and content

This series documents a research study on the Canadian electorate based, in part, on information collected by the Canadian National Elections Studies. This research looked at voting patterns in relation to several variables including: 1) party identification, 2) perceptions of the party leader specifically Pierre Elliot Trudeau, and 3) religion and language. It was compiled through the 1990s with Joseph Fletcher, and while several papers and talks were prepared and at least one was published, the research as an aggregate was never published. Included here is original collected data as well as analysis, drafts of papers given conferences and correspondence.
