Abstract

Declining access to fresh water is one of the twenty-first century’s most pressing environmental and human rights challenges, yet the struggle for water is not a new cause. The 8,800-kilometer border dividing Canada and the United States contains more than 20 percent of the world’s total freshwater resources, and Border Flows traces the century-long effort by Canada and the United States to manage and care for their ecologically and economically shared rivers and lakes. Ranging across the continent, from the Great Lakes to the Northwest Passage to the Salish Sea, the histories in Border Flows offer critical insights into the historical struggle to care for these vital waters. From multiple perspectives, the book reveals alternative paradigms in water history, law, and policy at scales from the local to the transnational. Students, concerned citizens, and policymakers alike will benefit from the lessons to be found along this critical international border.With contributions by Andrea Charron, Alice Cohen, Dave Dempsey, Jerry Dennis, Colin A.M. Duncan, Matthew Evenden, James W. Feldman, Noah D. Hall, Lynne Heasley, Nancy Langston, Frédéric Lasserre, Daniel Macfarlane, Andrew Marcille, Jeremy Mouat, Emma S. Norman, Peter Starr, Joseph E.

Abstract

Ce livre aborde un terrain plutôt méconnu en sciences humaines et sociales, celui de l’émigration française. En s’intéressant à cette expatriation au Canada, notamment dans ses grandes villes anglophones comme Toronto, on se rend compte que ce pays est souvent perçu comme jeune, dynamique et bilingue. A priori, ceci semble garantir aux migrants francophones à la fois le dépaysement et la possibilité sécurisante de recourir au français dans la vie de tous les jours. Même si la découverte de la...

Abstract

L'analyse de l'évolution de la ville nord-américaine, surtout depuis les années 1960, permet d'identifier les maux actuels, d'étudier les solutions envisageables et d'évaluer les enjeux sociaux, économiques, urbanistiques et politiques. La perspective comparative a été volontairement privilégiée car elle permet de mieux dégager la spécificité de la ville canadienne. La comparaison est essentiellement centrée sur le Canada et les États-Unis mais n'exclut pas quelques allusions au modèle brita...

Abstract

Canada in the Frame explores a photographic collection held at the British Library that offers a unique view of late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century Canada. The collection, which contains in excess of 4,500 images, taken between 1895 and 1923, covers a dynamic period in Canada’s national history and provides a variety of views of its landscapes, developing urban areas and peoples. Colonial Copyright Law was the driver by which these photographs were acquired; unmediated by curators, but rather by the eye of the photographer who created the image, they showcase a grass-roots view of Canada during its early history as a Confederation.&#xD;Canada in the Frame describes this little-known collection and includes over 100 images from it. The author asks key questions about what it shows contemporary viewers of Canada and its photographic history, and about the peculiar view these photographs offer of a former part of the British Empire in a post-colonial age, viewed from the old ‘Heart of Empire’. Case studies are included on subjects such as urban centres, railroads and migration, which analyse the complex ways in which photographers approached their subjects, in the context of the relationship between Canada, the British Empire and photography.&#xD;

Abstract

Canada and the United States. Two nations, one border, same continent. Anti-American sentiment in Canada is well documented, but what have Americans had to say about their northern neighbour? Allan examines how the American media has portrayed Canada, from Confederation to Obama’s election. By examining major events that have tested bilateral relations, Bomb Canada tracks the history of anti-Canadianism in the U.S. Informative, thought provoking and at times hilarious, this book reveals another layer of the complex relationship between Canada and the United States.

Abstract

Years of surveillance-related leaks from US whistleblower Edward Snowden have fuelled an international debate on privacy, spying, and Internet surveillance. Much of the focus has centered on the role of the US National Security Agency, yet there is an important Canadian side to the story. The Communications Security Establishment, the Canadian counterpart to the NSA, has played an active role in surveillance activities both at home and abroad, raising a host of challenging legal and policy questions. With contributions by leading experts in the field, Law, Privacy and Surveillance in Canada in the Post-Snowden Era is the right book at the right time: From the effectiveness of accountability and oversight programs to the legal issues raised by metadata collection to the privacy challenges surrounding new technologies, this book explores current issues torn from the headlines with a uniquely Canadian perspective.

Abstract

To understand how the legal system works, students must consider the law in terms of its structures, processes, language, and modes of thought and argument—in short, they must become literate in the field. Legal Literacy fulfills this aim by providing a foundational understanding of key concepts such as legal personhood, jurisdiction, and precedent, and by introducing students to legal research and writing skills. Examples of cases, statutes, and other legal materials support these concepts.While Legal Literacy is an introductory text, it also challenges students to consider critically the system they are studying. Touching on significant socio-legal issues such as access to justice, legal jargon, and plain language, Zariski critiques common legal traditions and practices, and analyzes what it means “to think like a lawyer.” As such, the text provides a sound basis for those who wish to pursue further studies in law or legal studies as well as those seeking a better understanding of how the legal field relates to the society that it serves.

Abstract

La Nouvelle Relation de la Gaspesie de Chrestien Leclercq présente un témoignage personnel et un plaidoyer en faveur des récollets. Elle constitue en même temps une source indispensable pour connaître le mode de vie des Micmacs gaspésiens au moment de leurs premiers contacts intensifs avec les Européens. Mais sa richesse tient surtout à la dimension mythique et comparative que Leclercq donne à son entreprise ethnographique. Il recrée ainsi une Gaspésie remarquablement vivante, avec sa culture...

Abstract

La Relation des avantures de Mathieu Sagean, Canadien s'inscrit d'emblée dans le mythe d'El Dorado. Mais n'y aurait-il pas une part de vérité dans ce que raconte Sagean ? Son récit appartient tout ensemble à la réalité coloniale de la fin du xviie siècle et au roman d'aventures de flibuste et de piraterie dont la mode s'amorce alors en France. C'est cet écheveau d'inven­tions pures et simples et de faits vécus ou appropriés d'autres voyageurs que tente de démêler l'édition critique de Pierre ...
