  MSN Encarta - Search View - Canadian Parliament
Parliament consists of three elements: the House of Commons; the Senate; and the governor-general, who serves as the representative of Queen Elizabeth II, Canada’s head of state.
Parliament cannot pass laws that concern issues outside the authority of the federal government or that infringe on the rights protected by the Constitution of Canada.
Canadian law protects Parliament’s and the public’s right to know about the processes that lead to many decisions by the federal and provincial governments, but it does not apply to materials submitted to the Cabinet.
