Soc 10 05 Making Decisions in Parliamentary Democracy
We’ve just recently gone through our election process in Canada and you’ve been fortunate enough to have time to discuss and learn about this decision-making power through real, current events.
Some other examples related to parliament and the ways decision-making is fairly made and balanced in Canada are included below:
- Parliament/Provincial Legislative: What’s the difference between minority and majority governments? And what examples have we had of them in Canada’s recent government? Find out what number of seats the different parties had that allowed for the party forming the government to be designated as either a majority or minority government.
- List of Canadian Parliament of past years – look at the difference in composition
- Canada’s 43rd Parliament – list of seats per party, etc
- Party representatives elected per province – look to see how varied, or not varied, the elected members representing a certain party are by province
- List of Standing Committees: these are the groups that meet to discuss issues and hear from experts in these areas before creating new bills or voting on them
- Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition:
- Regular Elections:
- Supreme Court of Canada:
