Excerpt from A Comparison Between the Federal Constitutions of Canada and AustraliaThe man who enters upon a comparison of the Federal Constitution of Canada with that of Australia has two courses open to him. Which he is to adopt will be determined by the meaning he puts upon the word "Constitution." If he interprets it to mean in each case one particular enactment of the Imperial Parliament, to which the term Constitution is usually applied, he will merely have to compare the provisions of two Acts of Parliament. But if he regards an account of the Constitution of a country as entailing a description of the structure of its different organs of government, of their powers and functions, and of their relations to one another - which, it is submitted, is the truer interpretation - his task will involve a general view of their political organisation; and to produce an adequate comparison of the two, it will require much more of him than simply to compare what we may call their Constitution Acts.The latter is the course which the present essayist has adopted. His aim has been to compare and contrast in their principal features the frames of government under which the people of Canada and Australia, respectively, have been united and live as citizens of a Federal (State, while they retain their status as subjects both of the Empire and of distinct though federated colonies.The plan pursued has been to divide the essay into two parts. In the first part the two Constitutions have been compared as types of Federal Constitutions. The nature of a Federal State has been demonstrated, its essential features described, and the presence of these characteristics of Federalism examined and compared in the respective Constitutions.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
