  • Richard Johnston will comment on developments within the 2015 campaign, drawing upon work by himself and others on campaigns in Canada and elsewhere. A question that always arises is: do campaigns "matter" at all? Campaigns also raise normative questions, for instance, about the place of negative advertising. And campaigns must also be seen in larger contexts—of the history of the Canadian party system and of Canada in comparison with other mass democracies.
