Educational Series

The world of politics is often swarmed with misinformation and miscommunication. However, good policy depends on an accurate understanding of our democracy, governance, and political landscape. In our new video series, The Academy, we cut through the noise to answer the question on every Canadian’s mind: why would a Prime Minister call an election before their term is up?

Delphic breaks down the history of minority governments in Canada. While there is no clear recipe when it comes to landing a majority government, past Prime Ministers’ trials and successes illustrate that election timing can be pivotal to determining who will win the next election. Tune in to hear how, in a minority government, the ability to choose when an election will fall is at both the government and the official opposition’s disposal.

Feeling informed?

There’s a lot more where that came from. Delphic Research is on a mission to transform the government relations sector into an industry based on knowledge because evidence-informed insights produce clearer governance, better policy, and ultimately more effective government.
