So Spooky!
Politics:
Canada has multiple parties running in its federal elections, but the two main ones are the Liberals and Conservatives.

If the leading party in a federal election has more than 170 seats in the House of Commons (Canada's equivalent of the House of Representatives) that government is a majority government. If it has less than that, then it's a minority government.

The difference is that in a minority government, the other parties have more control than they would in a majority government (where they're called the opposition and provide criticism on any bills that are being passed).

The ruler of Canada is called the Prime Minister, he/she lives at 24 Sussex Drive in Ottawa. The capitol building (Parliament) is where he/she works.

The Prime Minister is allowed to have as many terms as they want, provided they win elections over and over again.

Geography:
Canada is divided into ten provinces and three territories, Manitoba, Alberta, Quebec, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Nova-Scotia, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick, British Columbia, and Newfoundland and Labrador. The three territories are: Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and the Yukon.

Each province or territory is ruled by a premier, the premier is represented in the House of Commons by his/her members of parliament (MPs). They reside in the province's capital.

The largest city in Canada is Toronto with a population of over 6 million. The next largest is Montreal, with a population of over 4 million.

Canada is (technically) ruled by the monarch of England. The constitution act of 1982 gave Canada its independence.
