Dual and Diverse?

As Canada entered the twenty-first century it carried with it many unresolved questions relating to its national identity. Over the century the friction in the relationship between Canadians of British and French descent evolved into the difficult  political and constitutional conflict between Quebec and the rest of Canada. The conflict resulted in a near breakup of the country.Contributors: Christl Verduyn, Jack Jedwab, Dyane Adam, John Meisel, Robert Choquette: Arthur Silver, Naïm Kattan, Cornelius J.

From Influence to Controversy: The 125th Anniversary of the Supreme Court of Canada

The turn of the millenium marks the 125th anniversary of the Supreme Court of Canada ("SCC") and the 50th anniversary of the abolition of appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in England. In recent years, particularly since the 1982 introduction of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the SCC has become a more active participant in the development of Canadian public policy, and in the shaping of Canadian attitudes. The following collection of articles explores this new found influence of the SCC, along with the issues and controversy that have naturally arisen with its increasing role in defining modern Canadian values.Contributors: Robert M. Campbell, Andrew J .Hladyshevsky, Pearl Eliadis, Reema Khawja, William A. Schabas, Donald Bisson, Christopher P . Manfredi, Jacob S. Ziegel, Gerlad L. Gall, Rebecca Sober
