A Citizen’s Guide to Government serves to inform Canadians about their government and to encourage greater understanding, interest and involvement in the political process. This terrific primer shows how all levels of government in Canada work, how they are organized, how they interact with each other, and how citizens may participate effectively in government.

It offers insights into how and why political decisions are made about the issues that affect all Canadians -- taxes, education, employment, health care and the debt. Each chapter concludes with a definition of terms and key concepts, issues for classroom discussion, and further readings.

The third edition has been completely updated to capture current issues and trends in Canadian politics, including new developments affecting the social safety net, proposed changes to our voting systems, and the ongoing debate over the impact of the free trade agreements on Canada’s economy and society. The discussion of political parties has been revised and updated, with new coverage of brokerage politics and of the fundamental philosophical differences between parties.

Third edition previously published in 2005 under ISBN 0-07-095909-9.
