Democratizing the Constitution, Reforming Responsible Government by Peter Aucoin, Mark D. Jarvis, and Lori Turnbull, Emond Montgomery Publications, Toronto, 2011.

During the years of minority government political observers frequently decried the state of our parliamentary democracy. It was often said we needed an adult conversation. The academic community tried to shed light on some issues but mostly they vilified the Prime Minister, called for less partisanship, proposed proportional representation or cited the need for a cabinet manual to set out the rules of governance. Such suggestions were not very helpful.

1.0 out of 5 stars This volume is a waste of money June 4, 2012
I found this unfortunate volume a waste of time and money.
It is a prejudiced approach and personal attack on individual politicians.
The volume is negatively biased towards political personalities and promotes changes to the Canadian Constitution to fit the myopic political views of the authors.
I cannot imagine why this book received the Booker Prize in 2012.
My summary is: Not worth it!!
