To carry out our new mandate to sample the Canadian Internet domain for preservation purposes, Library and Archives Canada has acquired websites related to the Federal Election held on January 23rd, 2006. In many cases, sites have been captured multiple times in order to show the evolution of the political debate throughout the election campaign. It is possible that some functionality within each archived site may not work correctly.
Some of our website harvesting is still in progress and we will be adding new sites to this special collection as they are downloaded and as we negotiate access permission from the website owners.
Here is a selection of the Election 2006 websites which we have acquired for our Digital Collection :
Liberal Party of Canada
Conservative Party of Canada
Bloc Québécois (French only)
New Democratic Party
Canadian Action Party
Green Party of Canada
Communist Party of Canada
Christian Heritage Party of Canada
* Please note that many of the above named political parties include blogs within them so be sure to check for blogs there as well ! *
