New Collection: Canadian Parliamentary Democracy
Our latest collection presents an overview of Canada's parliamentary system. Students will
gain insight into the role of Members of Parliament and the basic structure and
functions of the House of Commons and Senate.
We also examine
some of the more recent hot-button issues in Canadian parliamentary life,
including calls to address what some perceive as a “democratic deficit”,
whether by means of Senate reform, coalition governments, or changes to
Canada’s electoral system, such as introducing proportional representation.
