Canadian political organization, previously known as the Reform party (in the 1870s). Governed Canada for all but thirty years of the twentieth century. Usually feels itself to be the 'natural governing party' of Canada: often corrupt, and becomes even more so when the opposition is fragmented. Recently almost self-destructed in the wake of a particularly well documented and obvious corruption scandal. Has always shown great talent for re-inventing itself when necessary, willing to contort itself into any position necessary to win votes (at least east of Winnipeg). Presently in rebuilding mode in the wake of the recent scandal.
The Liberal party usually wins based on seats in Eastern Canada -- It's rare for them to do very well in the west.
