Election Results




In the returns of the general election of 1917, (G) after the name signifies that the candidate was officially endorsed by the Government (Unionist) leader, and (O) that the candidate was endorsed by Sir Wilfred Laurier, leader of the Opposition. Some candidates ran without any formal party endorsement, as provided in the Act.

Dans les relevés de l'élection générale de 1917, (G) placer après le nom signifie que le candidat a été endossé officiellement par le Chef (unioniste) du gouvernement, et (O) que le candidat a été endossé par Sir Wilfred Laurier, Chef de l'Opposition. Certains candidats se présentaient sans l'endossement d'un parti, comme le stipule l'Acte.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
