CENTRALIZATION AND DECENTRALIZATION IN CANADIAN FEDERALISM

  • F R SCOTT
Keywords: Constitutional Law

Abstract

Despite theorists’ focus on Quebec when describing the problems posed by federalism, the author argues that the same problems could, and potentially do, exist in other provinces, and would endure even if Canada were entirely French or entirely British. In light of opposing pressure for both greater centralization and decentralization, he examines the centralizing power of the Constitution, arguing that enlarging provincial power is very different than weakening federal power, and that adherence to the original conception of centralization is desirable.
