PARAMETERS OF POWER Constitution—1867 also know as the confederation where at first a small area of quebec, Ontario, and the maritimes bounded together. Federalism: Like Canada, where there are two levels of government (federal and provincial) which both have independent constitutional status of their own. Unitary states: where there is only one senior government. There may be regional agencies to help the main level of government but they have no independent right and they relay directly to the main level of government and they can be abolished at any time. Quasi-federal states: where there are regional government that have some independence but not completely. National government could intervene if some acts would conflict with National priorities. Sir John A. Macdonald was the first prime minister of Canada. Electoral system and the Canadian voter: There are 308 roughly equal-by-population electoral districts in which one representative to the house of Common is elected.
