Minority Government in Canada: Herman Bakvis

Professor Herman Bakvis presented his paper, "Minority Government in Canada: Conventions, Public Opinion, and Party Strategies - The 2015 Election and Beyond", at the ACSUS Biennial Conference in Las Vegas, October 14-17, 2015. Quoting the paper, "Canada is no stranger to minority government either federally or provinically... Now, on the eve of a federal election, there is a distinct possibility that we will once again see a minority government in Ottawa." Dr. Bakvis addresses the form a minority government might take, how long it may last, and whether a coalition might be formed.
