Other contributors include Christine Boyle (UBC), Tom Cromwell (Dalhousie), Jacques Fremont (Montreal), Martha Jackman (Carleton), Wayne MacKay (Dalhousie), Ian Scott (Gowling, Strathy and Henderson), and Lynn Smith (UBC). Canadian Constitutional Dilemmas Revisited contributes valuable scholarly perspectives for Canadians and others faced with the task of redefining political communities and resolving pressing constitutional issues.
