Here is what people are saying about The Canadian Constitution online:

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book April 20 2013

By Matthew Shoemaker

This is not only a great reference book (this point cannot be understated) but it is also true to the genre of Law-Humour. Professor Dodek does a fantastic job of explaining the constitution, setting out important cases as well as an excellent short-history of both the constitution and the Supreme Court. The ‘Interesting Facts’ chapter is a treasure trove of information (both comical and factual).

5.0 out of 5 stars “peace. order, and good government” April 16 2013

Skim it, use it for reference, or read it right through as I did. A very enjoyable and interesting book that makes me proud to be a Canadian.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good but way too short April 25 2013
By daniel michaelThis book was extremely interesting. It spoke about what the Canadian constitution is, how it came to be and how it is used. It also spoke about some important and interesting things that stem from it. This book contained a lot of great Canadian history. For me, anything regarding Canadian politics/history is riveting, and there is a huge shortage of literature on this subject.
However, I must note that the reason I cannot give it 5 stars is that this book is way too short. There is so much potential information to write about regarding the SCC and what the constitution actually entails. This book was less than 200 pages to begin with and to make matters worse, a huge chunk of it was occupied by the actual text of the constitution and notes. It is a very brief and quick read.
