Unlike the American two-party system, Canada has multiple political parties. Although only the Conservative Party and the Liberal Party have ever formed a government, several other parties have had elected members in parliament.
In Canada everybody seems to have a party that fits them ideologically really, really closely,” said Mr Lebo.
This system allows for a greater diversity of policy perhaps, but it can also split the vote, with several parties on either side of the political spectrum vying for support.
Mr Lebo said the American Democrats are better at keeping everyone in the fold, noting the diversity of views between Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Joe Manchin.
“What Democrats understand fundamentally, at least the leaders do, is that if they cannot keep those two sides of the same party, they’re going to lose.”
