The Ottawa Citizen has a story in which academics dream of bringing the bliss of Canberra’s arrangements to the Great White North as they attempt to reform the governance of Ottawa.
Taylor says the biggest advantage of a provincial status, similar to the system in Canberra, is that its powers are defined and not subject to the whims of a federal government that can change from time to time.
”Essentially what you have now in Ottawa is three dogs and one bone. If you have provincial status, you have one top dog that the federal government can’t mess with,” he says.
The grass is always greener eh?
