This volume is an examination, by some of Canada's leading scholars, of the challenges facing the Canadian federation as it enters the twenty-first century. It addresses the performance, effectiveness, and legitimacy of Canadian federalism in response to the forces of internationalization and regionalization. A central concern is to apprise how ongoing developments in Canadian federalism enable problems to be addressed in a way that is both effective in resolving the problem and consistent with Canadians' expectations of a democratic government.
