Commentaries: An Overview of the Trudeau Constitutional Proposals
AbstractIn response to Professor Simeon's overview of the Trudeau Resolution, Alan C. Cairns and Garth Stevenson discuss different aspects of the constitutional proposals. Professor Cairns makes seven observations on the process of constitutional reform, touching on the various stages involved, the Charter of Rights, an historical comparison between events preceding the B.N.A. Act and events occurring in response to the current reform proposals, and the role to be played by the Canadian people. Professor Stevenson adopts a federalist position and, in contrast to Professor Simeon, concludes that the method of presentation, content and possible omissions of the federal constitutional proposals are not fatal to their success.
