This title presents an inside account of the making of Canada's Constitution and the advent of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. It provides historical perspective to all of the major episodes leading up to the Constitution Act, 1982, from Prime Minister Trudeau's opening letter in 1976 at the Annual First Ministers' Conference in August, to the proclamation of the act in April of 1982. The constitutional crisis of those years severely tested the will of Canadians to exist as a united nation and obliged all governments to fashion new solutions based on compromises.
