The magician Doug Henning was senior vice president of NLPC, and ran as the party's candidate for the former Toronto riding of Rosedale in the 1993 federal election, finishing sixth out of ten candidates.
The NLPC supported federal funding for further research in the technique of yogic flying, a part of the TM-Sidhi program, as a tool for achieving world peace. The NLPC platform maintained that once it took over the government, Canada's crime, unemployment, and deficit would disappear. In a 1993 news article, Naomi Rankin, the leader of the Communist Party of Alberta, referred to the NLP as "crackpot".[need quotation to verify] One of its slogans was "If you favour Natural Law, Natural Law will favour you." The party was de-registered by Elections Canada, the Canadian government's election agency, on January 23, 2004.
