Belonging: The Meaning and Future of Canadian Citizenship

Overview

Several contributors deal with the quality of Canadian citizenship and the principle of distributive justice applied to all citizens. Others offer a "lament" for the Canadian nation, analysing and explaining why the vision of Canadian citizenship as an allegiance to the federation did not succeed in overcoming the varied loyalties pulling Canadians in different directions.

Overview

Several contributors deal with the quality of Canadian citizenship and the principle of distributive justice applied to all citizens. Others offer a "lament" for the Canadian nation, analysing and explaining why the vision of Canadian citizenship as an allegiance to the federation did not succeed in overcoming the varied loyalties pulling Canadians in different directions. Some authors celebrate this failure, arguing that maintaining dual alliance to the nation and province is more important. The essays reflect a consensus that Canada and Canadians have failed to give their citizenship meaning. One explanation for this, offered by the editor William Kaplan, is that Canadians are private about their patriotism, even if it is deeply felt. If Canadian citizenship is to endure, that patriotism will have to be more strongly and publicly expressed. Contributors to this volume are Daryl Bean, Neil Bissoondath, Robert Bothwell, Alan Cairns, Marc Cousineau, Robert Fulford, J.L. Granatstein, Darlene Johnston, William Kaplan, the late Paul Martin Sr, Rosella Melanson, Desmond Morton, Peter Neary, Maureen O'Neil, Robert J. Sharpe, Monique Simard, Glenda Simms, Daniel Turp, and Michael Walker. The essays by Simard and Turp are in French.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume provides a very comprehensive and unprecedented set of essays focused on Canadian citizenship ... The essays are accessible and readable which will introduce a broad audience to the issue at this crucial point in Canadian history." Howard Adelman, Department of Philosophy, York University.
Booknews
Essays presented in January 1992 at a Roundtable on Citizenship sponsored by the Faculty of Law at the U. of Ottawa discuss what it means to be a Canadian and how Canadian citizenship must evolve if it is to serve a unifying ideal. The essays are organized in four broad categories: history; regions; law, constitutionalism, and economics; and individuals and groups. No index. Annotation c.
