Federal State

and the regional govt.
- Neither can subordinate or overrule the authority of the
other
- In no federation does perfect equality exist between all in the
federation
Problems

- Protects status quo, or moves to change them
- Act as a barrier to change
Judicial Review

- determine if particular laws are valid and can be enacted by a
legislature

Only pages 1-3 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred.

Unitary State
-Power is located in one central authority.
-Local authorities are subordinate to the central power.
-The legislature may remove the power granted to it by the
central government. Ex, Ontario over Municipalities
Regional Diversities
Influenced by immigration patterns, different resources different
economies, different history and cultures.
•Primary goal is job creation, Sustains families, Dignity, Politics,
Economy
- Govt. tries to manage differences 3 ways:
1) Industrial incentives programs-
•Make viable industries attractive in slow growth regions
•Tax credits, seed money, consulting services.
2) Infrastructure assistance programs
-Assist in providing capital for sewers, water, road improvement,
hospitals and universities
3) Social adjustment and rural development programs
-Try to develop industries in areas where there is little or no productive
employment
Moral hazard is the prospect that a party insulated from risk may behave differently
from the way it would behave if it were fully exposed to the risk…ie corporations when
they are handed bailouts
Flaws of Regional Development Programs
•Industrial incentive programs favor capital intensive program in areas
where one of the major problems is excess labor. (Mega-projects).
•Do the companies really need the grants, or would they have done it
anyway?
•Grants to one company could hurt other existing companies who have
not received grants.
•Industrial incentive programs may accrue to multinational companies
in foreign countries.
-Could lead to ‘bidding wars’ between neighboring provinces or
countries to secure the relocation of large companies
