Blogger speaks

Blog readers in southern Ontario may be interested in the Yorkminster Park lecture series (Yonge/St. Clair), where I will be the featured speaker a week from Friday, January 17.

As the blurb suggests, I will be raising themes and topics that may be familiar to longtime followers of this blog:
From Tokyo to Canberra, from Warsaw to Westminster, prime ministers are more often removed from power by their own backbenchers than by voters in general elections. In Canada, the idea of MPs wielding that kind of power shocks experts and the public alike. Today the parliamentary system thrives all over the world, but every country's parliamentary system has its unique quirks and conventions. Historian Christopher Moore, author of 1867: How the Fathers Made a Deal invites us to consider Canada's parliamentary culture in world context.
