In the Canadian case, the highly decentralized nature of the federal system enables the provinces and regions to exercise considerable autonomy. In this context, policy disagreements have often been interpreted through the prism of regionalism. Some observers of Canadian politics have expressed concerns that this amplifies disagreement and could undermine the legitimacy of national policies and institutions.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Research, policy & practice Canada diversity federalism policy Tue, 31 Oct 2017 22:36:33 +0000 10941 at http://www.childcarecanada.org
