This new, revised edition of the best-selling introduction to Canadian politics examines the characteristics, complexities, and controversies of the subject in a way that is comprehensive yet comprehensible. While offering a thorough grounding in the basics of Canadian government--its institutions, ideologies, and processes--Canadian Democracy, Sixth Edition, focuses on issues of individual, group, and regional equalities and freedoms, and raises thought-provoking questions about the nature of Canadian democracy itself. Through its contemporary approach, this innovative text teaches readers to think critically through analysis of current issues, helping today's students become actively engaged citizens.
