The Canadian Annual Review of Politics and Public Affairs is an acclaimed series offering informed commentary on important national events and considering their significance in local and international contexts. The 2006 installment of the series covers the thirty-ninth general election, in which the Conservative Party secured a minority government and Stephen Harper became Canada’s twenty-second Prime Minister.
This volume examines Harper’s cabinet and Supreme Court appointments, as well as Paul Martin’s resignation as leader of the Liberal Party and the appointment of interim leader Bill Graham. Also discussed are tensions in Caledonia, Ontario between residents and Six Nations protestors, the agreement between Canada and the United States on the trade of softwood lumber, increasing violence and casualties in the escalating war in Afghanistan, and other domestic and international events impacting politics and public affairs.
