Congratulations to Joey Waitschat, MPhil

Joseph Waitschat was awarded his MPhil degree at the Graduation Ceremony, November 28.

Joey is the Centre’s first MPhil graduate in Canadian Studies.

Joey’s thesis is entitled: The Canadian Senate: A chamber of sober second thought or an upper house shaped by partisan politics during the first sixty years of confederation? 

The thesis develops a fascinating analysis of the way three dynamic and important government-introduced bills, between 1867 and 1927, were ultimately blocked by the Canadian Senate.
