There are some flaws in Canadian political system which needs immediate attention. For instance, there is no connection between federal and provincial political parties which means that there are political issues which arise as a result. Having same names never mean that the ideology is as well. There is only one political party in Canada which is very strongly connected to its provincial branches. It is the New Democratic Party. The political or ideological differences in parties also lead to results which could be fatal. Though such situation has never arisen there is no exception to this. The crown, as well as the Prime Minister, should take care of the issue. Some of the famous political parties in Canada are as follows. These are registered with Election Canada or Election Commission of Canada as well:
