The foundations of Canadian democracy have always been underscored by its instability. In a country with such rich geographic, cultural, and communal diversity, the tenets of its democracy contradict the very nature of the nation.
Canadian-made democracy was borne from the patriation of the Constitution from Britain only 42 years ago. Yet the trepid and impetuous actions of our political leaders have led to a complete failure in reforming this system. What remains is our current political system — an increasingly dysfunctional democracy.
Canadians feel increasingly abandoned by their government, irritated by elections that bring no change, and further dispirited as economic disparity mounts. On Canadian Democracy addresses the affliction that is our country’s democracy and it seeks out the remedies and treatments to this failing system. Sparking discussion, challenging long-existing structures, and asking difficult questions — Manthorpe is determined to renew hope among Canadians through the means of reformation.
