 Canadian House of Commons - LearnThis.Info Enclyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
The House of Commons (in French, la Chambre des communes) is the lower, directly elected house of the Parliament of Canada which sits in the nation's capital, Ottawa, Ontario.
However, the actual formal selection of prime minister is not made by the House of Commons in a vote; rather they are appointed by the governor general, who selects the person he or she deems most likely to command the support of the House of Commons.
This person is responsible for the security of the Parliament Buildings and has ceremonial duties, such as carrying the mace into the chamber at the start of each house sitting.

 Electoral Systems (BP334E)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
Under PR, political parties are assigned a number of seats in parliament corresponding to the degree of support they have received in a given electoral district; of necessity, this arrangement dictates that all PR systems rely on multi-member districts.
List systems have been criticized because they place considerable power in the hands of political parties, since they determine the order in which candidates names appear on the ballot --- and thus which candidates are most likely to assume office.
Variants of the party list system that allow voters to chose either from among a party's candidates or between the candidates on several parties' lists allow voters a truer expression of their preferences.

The new federal Government, which was formed on November 4, dropped any claim to being the sole successor state of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (which dissolved in 1992), and was recognized by the international community.
The Federal and Serbian Constitutions provide for this right; however, in practice, under Milosevic, citizens in Serbia consistently were discouraged and often were prevented from exercising this right by the regime's domination of the mass media, control of the police, and manipulation of the electoral process.
Federal and Serbian laws regarding conspiracy, threats to the integrity of the Government, and terrorism are vague and were abused by the Milosevic regime.

 The Statute of Westminster (1931) - Studies on the Canadian Constitution and Canadian Federalism - Quebec History
The next sixty years were to see a gradual take-over by the federal government of the responsibilities in external sovereignty that had remained, to this point, in the hands of the government and Parliament of Great Britain.
Until 1982, all attempts to patriate the constitution were unsuccessful so that Canada continued to seek amendments in London and an element of colonial status remained in force (one might also add that appeals to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council existed until abolished in 1949).
No law of the Parliament of Britain shall extend to any of the Dominions "otherwise than at the request and with the consent of that Dominion." Thus the Colonial Laws Validity Act, 1865 (28 and 29 Vict.

 "The Canadian Constitution, A History Lesson."
It was thought at the time that such a listing of "rights" would impress people and bring them together with other parts of the country.
The Magna Carta, however, was but a list: the kings and the nobles within a year or two of 1215 returned to their old ways of continual fighting amongst themselves and hundreds of years were yet to pass before any real progress was to made in respect to the rights of the people.
Try as they might, since 1927, the federal government and the Canadian provinces, mainly because of the English/French thing, could never come up with an amending formula acceptable to all -- and unanimity, in the setting up of an initiating constitutional term, as constitutional amending formula can only be, was necessary.

 Self-Government and Federal Union: 1841-1867 - Canadian Heritage
Nevertheless, in the first Union parliament of 1841, Governor-General Sydenham used his amply persuasive powers to satisfy Assembly members that his coalition government containing both Conservatives and Reformers would rule in "harmony" with the interests of the elected House, if not actually be responsible to it.
Thus when the new parliament met in 1848, the existing Tory administration was crushingly defeated in the House, and resigned in early March.
Thus federalism and responsible parliamentary government were to be combined in the central sphere of a new constitution.
