They centre around the increase of support for the Canadian Alliance party, which achieved a growth of 7 percent in its popular vote over its predecessor, the Reform Party. Despite such an improvement in votes, particularly in the province of Ontario which had been a key element in the Alliance strategy, and despite an increase of six seats in Parliament, the Alliance campaign has been generally termed a failure.
