9781459709881: The Crown and Canadian Federalism

More than ever Canada’s constitutional monarchy should be treasured as a distinct asset for the nation.

Following Queen Elizabeth II’s historic Diamond Jubilee in 2012, there is renewed interest in the institution of the Crown in Canada and the roles of the queen, governor general, and lieutenant governor. Author D. Michael Jackson traces the story of the monarchy and the Crown and shows how they are integral to Canada’s parliamentary democracy. His book underscores the Crown’s key contribution to the origins, evolution, and successful functioning of Canadian federalism, while the place of the monarchy in francophone Canada and the First Nations receives special attention.

Complex issues such as the royal prerogative, constitutional conventions, the office of lieutenant governor, and Canada’s honours system are made readily accessible to the general reader. Jackson examines the option of republican governance for Canada and concludes that responsible government under a constitutional monarchy is far preferable. He further argues that the Crown should be treasured as a distinct asset for Canada.

About the Author :

D. Michael Jackson was chief of protocol for the Government of Saskatchewan from 1980 to 2005, coordinated 10 royal tours for the province, and established the provincial honours program. Appointed Commander of the Royal Victorian Order by Queen Elizabeth II in 2005, he is a Member of the Saskatchewan Order of Merit and lives in Regina.

Review :

The Crown and Canadian Federalism (Dundurn Press) is a lot more fun than its earnest title suggests. (Regina Leader Post)

"The Crown and Canadian Federalism is essential reading for anyone interested in Canadian history and politics as well the evolving constitutional monarchy in Canada." (royalhistorian.com)

Jackson argues convincingly that constitutional monarchy is as Canadian as...slippers, and in the end a comfortable fit. (Blacklock's Reporter)

Michael Jackson has written a work of significance, reflecting extensive research into his subject, a broad knowledge of the Canadian Crown and a lifetime of profound professional and personal devotion to Queen, nation and his beloved Saskatchewan. It is eminently readable as it combines scholarship with insight and “good tales” about the human foibles that often have strengthened, sometimes weakened, the institution. (Canadian Monarchist News)
