How it Began, How it Evolved is a valuable teaching tool and learning resource. This 68‐page booklet was written to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of parliamentary democracy in Canada. It tells about Nova Scotia’s remarkable past. It also tells about how today’s governments are elected, the role of the Cabinet and opposition parties, how laws are passed, and a lot more. It was Nova Scotia that laid the foundations upon which all governments in Canada were built, and many beyond. These foundations were the starting point for the institutions that guarantee many of our rights and freedoms today.
