about

In recent years Canada''s Senate, Parliament''s chamber of sober second thought, has often been the subject of controversy and calls for reform. Protecting Canadian Democracy examines the history, role, and evolution of the Senate; places it in the context of other federal systems; and contrasts its role with that of provincial governments. Contributors analyse the Senate''s use of its legislative powers, comparing it with the House of Commons, and assess the Senate''s contribution to public policy development and review, showing how the upper chamber functions as a forum within Parliament for the representation of Canada''s diverse regional, linguistic, cultural, and socio-economic interests.
The Honourable Serge Joyal was a Liberal Member of Parliament from 1974 to 1984 and has been a Senator since 1997.
