Abstract

Recent developments in Canadian constitutional law have stimulated a great deal of debate and controversy over the value and content of constitutional reform. Areas in which such reform could be carried out include the division of powers, central institutions, a charter of rights and patriation and amendment procedures. The author discusses these areas in the context of the forces he perceives to be motivating the present trend in favour of constitu tional change. He also provides a discussion of the present reform process and concludes with an overview of the reform mechanism which he would like to see implemented.
