Product Description

As residents of Ottawa walk in front of Parliament Hill to admire the architecture, or as other Canadians see the Parliament buildings from afar on their nightly newscasts, they are surely tempted to pose searching questions. What really goes on there? Who writes the laws and how? What role does politics play in contributing to the good governance of the country? How is the House of Commons the focus of Canadian democracy?  

In The House of Commons of Canada, author Rob Walsh provides the necessary answers to such inquiries. He comprehensively sets out the fundamentals of the origins, the evolution, and especially the current functioning of the institution that is the central pillar of government and politics in Canada. What results is a complete and thorough portrait of the House of Commons, its mechanisms, and its internal workings.
