Published in 1991 in the wake of the collapse of the Meech Lake Accord, this brief, readable guide to the ensuing constitutional crisis features leading experts from Québec and English Canada.
The book focuses on three key areas--public opinion, economic questions and constitutional politics--each debated by contributors from English Canada and from Québec. The participants comprise political scientists Édouard Cloutier, André Blais, Roger Gibbins and Peter Russell, and economists Pierre Fortin and Grant Reuber.
Confederation in Crisis offers an immediate, vital perspective on Canada's perennial constitutional debates.
