Review

This is a good example of a case study analysis. Section 92A of the 1982 Constitution grants the provinces jurisdiction over non-renewable natural resources, forestry resources, and electrical energy. The essay by Meekison and Romanow chronicles the negotiations that led to the enactment of this resources amendment; this is an account of the maneuvering and bargaining that took place behind the scenes. Both authors were directly involved in this posturing. Moull gives an objective analysis of the legal meaning and effect of Section 92A. Both essays are of importance to the Canadian West.
