Canada and the United States: Unidentical Twins - 9/30 Daypass - Revolution, Counterrevolution, and Government in the United States and Canada
The founding of the United States and Canada are mirror-image opposites of each other. The United States has a revolutionary heritage and Canada a counterrevolutionary one. Whereas early American colonists liberated themselves by force, Canadians maintained patriotic connections to their colonial motherlands. The political systems of the two countries reflect these opposed beginnings. This presentation outlines the key differences (and increasing similarities) between American and Canadian government. Christopher Cochrane is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto. He is the author of Left and Right: The Small World of Political Ideas, and Canadian Politics: Critical Approaches (with Kelly Blidook and Rand Dyck). His current work focuses on the computational analysis of language in Canadian Parliament (www.lipad.ca).
