In memoriam

Peter Aucoin, the celebrated political science professor and scholar, passed away yesterday at the age of 67.

His last book—Democratizing the Constitution: Reforming Responsible Government—was released this Spring. (One of his co-authors, Mark Jarvis, penned a guest post for us a few months ago that outlined some of that book’s ideas for parliamentary reform.)

A few of Peter’s essays, published in the Canadian Parliamentary Review, are collected here. A longer version of his piece on government accountability can be found here.
