If you ever suspected Canadian politicians flip-flopped on a specific issue, or wondered where they stand on another, a new online tool will help you easily find out for sure.

The Web Archives for Historical Research Group is pleased to announce a very soft launch of our interactive portal to work with the Canadian Political Parties and Political Interest Groups collection. It is liable to go down at any time.
