Making government interesting

Who Runs This Country, Anyway? A Guide to Canadian Government
by Joanne Stanbridge

A comical duo — Zoe, a student documentary filmmaker and Nathan, her slightly clueless sidekick — guide readers through Canada's electoral and governing process. They explain the different levels of government (municipal, provincial/territorial, federal), how the election process works and what happens during parliamentary proceedings. They also provide a brief summary of the monarchy and show how a bill gets passed.

Lively prose and interesting photos make for entertaining and informative reading.
