and who were led by former Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier; and The Liberal Unionists who joined Sir Robert Borden's Unionist government.Seeking broader support for the imposition of conscription in 1917, Borden invited the Liberals into a wartime coalition government with the Conservatives.

Electoral District (Canada)
An electoral district in Canada, also known as a "constituency" or a "riding", is a geographical constituency upon which Canada's representative democracy is based. It is officially known in Canadian French as a circonscription, but frequently called a comté (county). Each federal electoral district returns one Member of Parliament (MP) to the Canadian House of Commons; each provincial or territorial electoral district returns one representative — called, depending on the province or territory, Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA), Member of the National Assembly (MNA), Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) or Member of the House of Assembly (MHA) — to the provincial or territorial legislature. While electoral districts in Canada

are now exclusively single-member districts, multiple-member districts have been used at the federal and provincial levels
