Building A Third Party

You are to invent a political party.

  1. You need to give it a name.
    • The name should be classy, catchy, descriptive and original.
    • You may not use a name of any existing party or recently deregistered party as listed on the Elections Canada website.
  2. Give it a reason for being.
    • Is the party hoping for:
      • more Christian politics?
      • more conservative politics?
      • more socialist politics?
      • more polite politics?
  3. Why is it there? How is it hoping to change the political world?
  4. Give it a platform.
    • What are the five keys things that this party will work for?
      • These items do not necessarily have to be original. If you steal ideas from the other parties you should give some explanation why you think this idea still needs to be done.
  5. Give it a leader.
  6. Give it a logo.
    • Use an 8.5*11 sheet of standard white paper.
    • Come up with something colorful that describes the party visually.
    • The only words on your logo should be the name of the party.

In short, think about what makes your party different from all the others. Why would people vote for you when they could vote for one of the main parties? How will you contribute something different?
