Bridge Building and the New Federalism

Roger Gibbins


The “Common Ground: Renewing the Federal Partnership in Quebec and the West” workshop explored, among other things, the prospect for building new bridges between Quebec and the West. This prospect raises two interesting conceptual questions: what is being used to build the bridge, and who is doing the building? My contribution to this bridge-building discussion focuses less on the building materials and more on who is doing the building, and on the durability of the bridge in the face of emergent challenges.
