If you’ve ever been confused about all the political jargon going around, recently the CBC has released a module called Vote Compass, to help voters understand where they stand in terms of political ideals.  It asks a series of questions, to which you respond with “strongly agree” or “strongly disagree”, or in between, and based on your answers it will place you somewhere on the political scale to help you understand to which political party and ideals you are more in line with.
