Our Canadian Parliamentary Issue Management Practice
Many Canadian legislative Acts have their beginnings in the persistent questions of an opposition M. P., a private member’s bill, the inquiries of a special House of Commons committee, a standing committees careful recommendations, or pressure from the government’s own caucus. All legislation works its way through the same formal legislative process; a process steeped in its own rules and traditions.
The Canadian parliamentary process is specialized, competitive, time consuming, and politically charged.
