“Constitutional Odyssey: Can Canadians be a Sovereign People?” [Book Review]

Peter Russell traces Canada’s constitutional history from Confederation to the recent Canada Round and the Charlottetown Accord. 

He begins by discussing the process of Confederation to the recent Canada Round and the Charlottetown Accord. He begins by discussing the process of Confederation itself, the question of provincial rights and the evolution of Canada as an autonomous community. He then provides an account of the country’s constitutional saga over the past 25 years. He proposes that the central question, which informs the whole book, is “Can Canadians become a sovereign people?”
