Who's in charge here, anyway?

Canadian Government takes a close-up look at how our country is run at all levels — from federal politics in Ottawa to provincial politics and down to the municipal level. Readers meet some famous Canadian politicians and learn the structure and function of different governing bodies, what it means to be a constitutional monarchy, and why it's important for citizens to vote.

This Canada Close Up title includes a table of contents, index and helpful glossary of terms. With concise, engaging text and bright, full-colour photographs throughout, Canadian Government shows young readers all the ways they can be involved in government — at any age.
