A new expanded edition of the first-ever primer on Canada’s Constitution — for anyone who wants to understand the supreme body of law in the land.
The Canadian Constitution makes Canada’s Constitution readily accessible to readers. It includes the complete text of the Constitution Acts of 1867 and 1982 with an explanation of what each section means, as well as a glossary of key terms, a short history of the Constitution, and a timeline of important constitutional events. The Canadian Constitution explains how the Supreme Court of Canada works and describes the people and issues involved in leading constitutional cases.
Author Adam Dodek, a law professor at the University of Ottawa, provides the only index to the Canadian Constitution, as well as fascinating background on the Supreme Court and the Constitution. This revised and expanded edition is a great primer for those coming to Canada’s Constitution for the first time, and a useful reference work for students and scholars.
