Abstract:

"Most Canadian parliamentarians are affiliated with a political party. In Parliament, those affiliated with the same political party are referred to as a "caucus." From time to time, however, parliamentarians change their party affiliation. They might choose to join another party or to sit as independent members. Alternatively, their party might expel them or cease to exist. This paper discusses the issues related to changing party affiliation in Canada and takes a brief look at approaches to this practice in other parliamentary democracies"--Overview, p. 1.
