Constitutional Amendment in Canada, Paperback / softback Book

Constitutional Amendment in Canada Paperback / softback

Edited by Emmett Macfarlane

Description

In Canada, the 1982 Constitution Act contains the amending formula, which outlines a set of procedures required to make changes to the constitution.

Recent debates over Senate reform, the status of the Supreme Court of Canada, and the rules governing royal succession have highlighted how important the amending formula is in maintaining the vitality and relevance of the governing system.

Constitutional Amendment in Canada is the first volume to focus solely on the implications of the amending formula in Canada.

Emmett Macfarlane has brought together a group of expert authors to address such topics as the difficulties of constitutional reform, the intersection of various levels of government and the judiciary, and the ability of the public to veto proposed changes.

Filling a serious gap in the literature, Constitutional Amendment in Canada is an authoritative study of the historical and contemporary implications of the amending formula.
