In order to be more concise with my writing (and to enable me to quickly and shortly post updates to twitter – I am getting a new account) I am reducing my 3 letter acronyms for political parties down to a single letter. I am also standardizing the 3 letter ones. They will be as follows.

Federal, modern
C = Conservative
L = Liberal
N = New Democratic
B = Bloc
G = Green
C = Canadian Alliance
P = Progressive Conservative
R = Reform
S = Social Credit
R = Ralliment Creditites
F = Co-Operative Commonwealth Federation
C = Conservative
P = Progressives
U = United Farmers
R = Reconstruction
P = Patron of Industry

P = Parti Quebecois
L = Parti Liberal Quebec
A = Action Democratique Quebec
Q = Quebec Solidarie
V = Parti Vert (Greens)

E = Equality Party
N = Nouveau Parti Democratique
R = Ralliement Creditiste (or National)
N = Parti Nationale Popularie
U = Union Nationale
I = Rassemblement pour I’independence Nationale
B = Bloc Popularie

The remainder of the provinces are very similar to federal, with only the following things being of note.
A = Acadian Party (NB)
F = Family Coalition Party (ON)
C = Confederation of Regions (ON, NB)
M = Communist – under various names (MB)
B = Labour (NS, NB, MB)
A = Alberta Alliance (AB)
W = Wildrose Alliance (AB)
W = Western Canada Concept (AB, SK)
R = Representative Party (AB)
R = Reform Party (BC)
S = Saskatchewan Party (SK)
Y = Yukon Party (YK)
P = Liberal-Progressive Union (MB)
S = Socialist (BC, MB)
D = Social Democrats (MB)
R = Reform Liberals (NL)
U = United Newfoundland Party (NL)
B = Labrador Party (NL)
A = Coalition (AB)
P = Progressive Democratic Alliance (BC)
M = Marijuana Party (BC)

Sorry, no extra data today!
