According to news reports this is the anniversary of a former prime minister named Brian Mulroney winning something called a "majority government".
What exactly is this strange term "majority government?"
No one really knows for sure as the mysterious phrase's meaning has been lost in the mists of time.
But political historians point to existing archaeological evidence which suggests that at one time these "majority governments" were actually quite common, though certainly one no alive can remember seeing one in action.
Radical theories have emerged of late suggesting the words refer to a government which won a majority of seats in the House of Commons, which meant it could enjoy a lifespan of longer than three months.
Most experts, however, argue it's positively preposterous to suggest any government could possibly survive for such an incredibly long period of time.
A more likely explanation, they say, is that the word "majority" is simply a linguistic corruption of the word "margarita" a cocktail many politicians probably imbibed after an electoral victory.
Anyway, that's enough history.
After all, we have an election this week, which promises to be even more exciting than the one we had last week.
