Stretching the Federation deals with such topics as world trends in federations, whether decentralization is inherently conservative, decentralization in health care, possible reallocations of programs and tax revenues, overlap and duplication in service delivery, and fiscal decentralization. Stretching the Federation is a timely and topical collection of cutting-edge thinking about the future of the Canadian federation.
