Federalism by Jennifer Smith( )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Federalism explains how Canada came to be a federation, what the current challenges to the federal system are, and how we could fortify it." "Jennifer Smith argues that a reformed federalism could be part of the solution to the state of Canadian democracy. She examines the origins of Canadian federalism and its special characteristics, then analyzes these features against the democratic benchmarks of responsiveness, inclusiveness, and participation. Finding that Canadian federalism falls short in each area, Smith recommends changes ranging from virtual regionalism to a Council of the Federation that includes Aboriginal representatives." "This revealing account of Canadian federalism is crucial reading for students and scholars of Canadian politics, politicians and policy makers, and those who care about the health of Canadian democracy."--Jacket

The evolving Canadian crown by Jennifer C Smith( Book )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Evolving Canadian Crown assesses the Crown in Canada from a variety of perspectives, including federalism, First Nations, the constitutional role of the governor general, the use of the reserve power, honours and public liturgy, and the "Canadianization" of the Crown. Comparative analyses of the Crown in Australia and New Zealand complete the picture. As Queen Elizabeth II marks her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, The Evolving Canadian Crown provides a stimulating insight into a little-understood yet key component of Canada's governance."--Pub. desc

Responsible government: clarifying essentials, dispelling myths and exploring change by Peter Aucoin( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this document is to explore the core of Canada's parliamentary democracy: responsible government. The first part examines the core element of responsible government as the rule on which everything else depends. It considers the political logic & rational for this rule and outlines how the single rule can accommodate many different kinds of institutional arrangements & practices. The second part examines the convention of ministerial responsibility, a related but separate & subordinate constitutional principle. It discusses how this principle is meant to operate, the confusion that exists about its effectiveness, and how it relates to the accountability of public servants. The third part examines the various checks & balances that exist within the system of responsible government as it applies to Canadian parliamentary structures. It discusses their effectiveness as they are currently practiced. The final part examines how proposed reforms to major Canadian institutional arrangements & political practices could affect responsible government & public servants. Includes glossary
