Strengthening Canadian Democracy, edited by Paul Howe, Richard Johnston and André Blais, McGill-Queen's University Press, 361 Pages, $75. From the back cover: "At a time of rising political discontent and declining voter turnout, the basic structures and principles of Canadian democracy are being scrutinized as never before by governments and citizens alike. Since 1999, under the aegis of the Strengthening Canadian Democracy program, the Institute for Research on Public Policy has contributed to this growing public debate with research and reflection from leading commentators. This edited volume brings together many of the papers from this program. Updated to reflect ongoing changes in the political landscape, they offer both analysis and prescription aimed at fortifying a flagging Canadian democracy."
