Amending Canada's Constitution: History, Processes, Problems and Prospects
"General readers and those new to the constitutional debate will benefit from a comprehensive and highly readable overview of some of the most significant and turbulent moments in the history of the Canadian federation. Events like the 1982 patriation of the Constitution and the Meech Lake and Charlottetown Accords - often discussed and frequently misunderstood - are reviewed and clearly explained with references to correspondence and other supporting memoranda. Of particular note is the series of letters between Pierre Trudeau and Rene Levesque in 1981-82 on the question of a Quebec veto."--BOOK JACKET.
