 Religion in Canada: Its Development and Contemporary Situation by Roger O'Toole for the American Religious Experience
Canada is a vast and physically diverse country but its small population of 29 million clusters in the shadow of that "longest undefended border in the world" which separates it from the approximately 260 million inhabitants of the United States.
The nineteenth-century "churching of Canada" differed significantly from the corresponding process witnessed in the United States (Finke and Stark, 1992) and, as a consequence, the anatomy of contemporary Canadian religion bears less resemblance to its American correlative than might initially or superficially be supposed.
For, despite the inroads of secularization, an evident crisis of religious commitment and an expanding non-European presence in its population, Canada undoubtedly remains remarkably Christian in a broad sense of that term (Statistics Canada, 1993; Maclean's, 1993).

 Roadside Surveys in Canada: 1974-1993
More specifically, it examines the results of roadside surveys conducted in Canada over the past twenty years to determine the extent of changes in the incidence of drinking and driving and to determine the extent to which changes in drinking and driving correspond to changes in the incidence of alcohol-related driver fatalities.
The increasing proportion of women among drinking drivers identified during roadside surveys is consistent with increases in the proportion of females among fatally injured drinking drivers.
Moreover, the correspondence between trends in the prevalence of drinking and driving found during roadside breathtesting surveys of nighttime drivers and trends in the incidence of alcohol involvement among fatally injured drivers in Canada suggests that alcohol-related fatalities reflect the overall prevalence of drinking and driving in the population.

 Aboriginal Justice in Canada (Palys, 1993)
Notwithstanding the results of Canada's 1992 national referendum -- where "the aboriginal package" went down to defeat, along with the rest of the constitutional proposals, among both aboriginal and non-aboriginal voters -- prospects for dramatic changes to the look of aboriginal-governmental relations in Canada are still alive and well.
Their arguments held that the federal government alone had sovereign authority over the land mass known as Canada; there were no such things as "aboriginal rights"; and, if there were, then it was within the power of the Government of Canada to extinguish them, and they had done so a long time ago.
Still, the fact that three members of Canada's highest court viewed Nisga'a title as still in existence was a major turn of events (and one which soon led the federal government to agree to negotiate where title had not been explicitly extinguished).
