Prime Minister – Leader, Conservative Party of Canada

Stephen Harper has been the Prime Minister of Canada since 2006 and the leader of the Conservative Party since 2004. Born in Toronto, Harper moved to Alberta after high school – first to Edmonton, then to study economics at the University of Calgary. He has been MP of Calgary Southwest since 2002, originally with the Canadian Alliance party, and became the Leader of the Opposition in that year’s election.

Total crime rate down

Justin Trudeau Age:43

Born in Ottawa while his father, Pierre Trudeau, was Prime Minister of Canada, Justin was raised in Montreal and is a graduate of both McGill University and UBC. Before entering politics, he worked as a French and math teacher in Vancouver. He won the riding of Papineau (Quebec) as a Liberal MP in 2008 – a position he still holds. He was named leader of the Liberal Party of Canada in 2013, succeeding Bob Rae.

Age: 60

Mulcair was born in Ottawa in 1954 and raised in Quebec – in Hull and Laval – and graduated from Montreal’s McGill University in 1977. Mulcair was elected leader of the NDP in 2012, succeeding the late Jack Layton as the head of Canada’s Official Opposition. Mulcair has been the MP for Outremont (Quebec) since 2007.

The oldest leader of Canada’s major federal political parties, Duceppe is also the longest-serving leader of the five – he led the Bloc from 1997 to 2011, then re-assumed leadership this year, replacing Mario Beaulieu. Duceppe also served as MP for Laurier–Sainte Marie from 1990 to 2011. He has not yet announced which riding he’ll run for in 2015.

2011

The 2011 federal election resulted in a major power shuffle in Ottawa – the incumbents increased their lead while others rose to prominence and relevance, and a once-dynastic party left in defeat, forced to rebuild. Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party won its third consecutive federal election, this time increasing its seat count to 166 to grab a majority government. The NDP, under the late Jack Layton, surged into the official opposition’s chair with 103 seats – the largest total in the party’s history. Meanwhile, the Liberal Party tumbled from 77 seats (in 2008) to just 34, and leader Michael Ignatieff left his post after the election. The Bloc Quebecois and Gilles Duceppe – who has returned to his position for 2015 – crashed from 49 seats won in 2008 to just four, losing its official party status.
