In contrast with most literature on Canadian politics, this book resurrects the relevance of Canada's Parliament by examining what MPs do, why they do it, and what effect it has. Constituency Influence in Parliament examines the rules and conduct of Private Members' Business to assess the complex relationship between constituency representation and policy proposals. This revealing study shows that Members of Parliament pursue various types of goals in the legislature - not all of which focus upon parties or leaders - and each MP plays an important representative role in shaping policy.
