This essay argues that the Canadian system of government and power dispersal allows things to get accomplished quickly and decisively, all the while showing who is accountable. The paper compares the power of the American President to that of the Canadian Prime Minister and attempts to answer the question of whether the Canadian Prime Minister wields too much power. The essay goes about answering this in the negative.
From the Paper:"When one looks to the south, to the United States, one is able to see a nation divided by political disunity, by partisan strife. In that country, many align themselves with a far right movement, concerned with religious issues and money for big business, while others concern themselves with more liberal endeavors. But the biggest problem with the American political system's way of accomplishing things is not so much its overall division, but rather the divisions within the main, centralized government that hinder accomplishment and progress. Canada does not have such a problem with its government."
