What was the significance of the Old Age pension plan?

The significance of the Old Age pension plan was to acknowledge that government had a role to play in providing a network of social services for its citizens.

Prior to the 1921 federal election there were two parties(Liberals and Conservatives) represented in Parliament. Since then, three or more parties have arisen. Why has this happened?

Before I wrote that this happened because lots of people had different demands that they wanted to be fulfilled, and since these parties weren't listening, individuals started gathering in groups and forming their own small parties. But then I think that the answer is supposed to be relating with the minority and majority thing. Stuck on this question.

What were the reasons for the rise of the Progressive party?

Reasons = Right to free trade and public ownership of the railways.
