At the next Research on Tap, Dr. Don Desserud, Professor of Political Science and UPEI’s Dean of Arts, will lead a discussion about the future of Canada’s system of government.
“Our model of governance is based on the assumption that governments will respect the traditions handed to us by the Westminster system,” says Dr. Desserud. “But what if they don’t? Who or what will hold them to that tradition? We are close to a constitutional crisis, and one option we might consider is an elected Governor General.”
