Adam Dodek dedicated this book to his son, who wanted his father to write a book in the "humour" genre. I suppose this is as close to funny as you can get when it comes to the Constitution.
This is not a bad book, although it is very short. The Canadian Constitution is freely available online (well, at least the written parts are—Canada's constitution features "unwritten Constitutional principles" that make life more than a little interesting) but this book annotates the sections and provides some background. There's also a brief introduction to the history of Canadian politics as it relates to the Constitution; it's helpful to read before diving into the Constitution Act, 1867
or the Constitution Act, 1982
A few small problems plague this book. There are some formatting inconsistencies (for example, the British North America Act
is referred to as the B.N.A. Act
, the B.N.A Act
and the BNA Act
; which is it?) and the like, but that's nothing that can't be fixed by a second edition.
