After we elect our representatives, are we comfortable that we are being properly, and democratically, represented? Apparently not. Respect for legislatures and legislators in Canada has steadily declined, and this perception is only aggravated by the current political climate." "David Docherty argues that the problem is not a lack of talent so much as scarce resources, cumbersome rules, and a lack of institutional freedom. Specifically, the move to a more multi-party system nationally and the increasing tendency to reduce the size of provincial assemblies has placed additional hurdles in the path to good governance. Docherty evaluates the Canadian legislative performance and makes recommendations for reform."--Jacket." ;
