From the System to the Citizen: New Directions for Democratic Renewal


Building on the advice in Getting to Ground: Democratic Renewal in Canada, the Crossing Boundaries National Council reached out to 'ordinary Canadians' for their ideas on how to revitalize our democratic institutions. From System to Citizen: New Directions for Democratic Renewal is the result of a two-part engagement process that included consultations with citizens and elected officials and a national poll conducted in collaboration SES Research and the Public Policy Forum. The report concludes that it's not a choice about whether or not to extend the public space that steers government. Rather, it's about how far to extend that space.
