The Canadian constitutional history and its determinants

La storia costituzionale canadese e le sue determinanti

  • Edmondo Mostacci


The essay analyses the Canadian constitutional history and focuses on the key-elements that have most influenced the development of Canadian constitutional law. In particular, it highlights how the québécoise question was the first and fundamental determinant of the constitutional order of the Nation. Subsequently, the suggestions coming from the United States and above all the question of independence from the Motherland played an equally significant role. However, the québécoise question re-emerges strongly when the process leading to independence from the United Kingdom comes to a positive end.
