Joyal, Serge


In recent years Canada's Senate, Parliament's chamber of sober second thought, has often been the subject of controversy and calls for reform. Protecting Canadian Democracy examines the history, role, and evolution of the Senate; places it in the context of other federal systems; and contrasts its role with that of provincial governments. Contributors analyse the Senate's use of its legislative powers, comparing it with the House of Commons, and assess the Senate's contribution to public policy development and review, showing how the upper chamber functions as a forum within Parliament for the representation of Canada's diverse regional, linguistic, cultural, and socio-economic interests.The book evaluates all the major proposals for reform of the past thirty years, contending that the Senate should be improved by means that do not require formal amendments to the Constitution. The authors identify possibilities for reform the institution within the current constitutional framework, addressing the Senate's veto power, its appointment process, and its legislative independence. A valuable appendix of charts and statistics on the composition and operation of the Senate is also provided. Contributors include Janet Ajzenstat, C.E.S. Frank, Serge Joyal, Senator Lowell Murray, Gil RĂ©millard David E. Smith, Jack Stilborn, Paul Thomas, and Ronald Watts.Joyal, Serge is the author of 'Proteger LA Democratie Canadienne Le Senat En Verite' with ISBN 9780773526464 and ISBN 0773526463.
