TORONTO: The Canadian Constitution Foundation (CCF) is excited to announce that this fall they will be releasing a new eBook called “Freedom Through Federalism”. The book contributors include some of Canada’s leading scholars and practitioners with special expertise in federalism and the division of powers.
The new book will be released in October, and the electronic version will be available free to download for all members of the public.
“We are so excited to announce this new book project, with contributors who are Canada’s leading scholars and practitioners on the division of powers between the federal and provincial levels of government,” said the CCF’s Executive Director, Joanna Baron. “The CCF’s mandate is to ensure that government power does not infringe on the rights and freedoms of Canadians or disrupt the division of powers inherent to Canada’s federal structure. Indeed, the federal structure can act to constrain government overreach and enhance liberty. This new book ‘Freedom Through Federalism’, will advance this objective by promoting civic engagement, awareness, and will educate the public. We are so thrilled that we can give this book to the public absolutely free.”
