Canadian Social Democrats
The Canadian Social Democrats (CSD) was a leftist party from Canada. Remaining a Top 5 party for most of its political life, CSD's journey was filled with varying levels of success, and varying levels of social-democratic thought, ranging from hard-line leftism, Third Way centrism, grassroots and traditional social democracy, and independent leftism. The party was temporarily transferred to France during the occupation of Canada in 2009.
In early 2010, CSD members began discussing ways to address the party's declining influence and activity. Eventually the party merged with the similarly-aligned CNC to form EPIC, a party of independents. As of Summer 2011, EPIC continues to experience success similar to that of the CSD.
As of June 2011, the original CSD party has changed hands several times. "Party 40" is currently housed in the United States.
