- Question 4
- Canada has inherited
her traditions of law and parliament from the English models.
A number of English institutions have been inherited or influenced
by English models. The parliamentary system of government, under which
the Cabinet rules the country and is responsible to Parliament, is
an extension of the British Cabinet system. In the realm of law, the
civil law in Canadian provinces(with the exception of Quebec where
French civil code is maintained) is based largely on English law.
The justice system of the Canadian courts also follows the English
example. As well, Canada has inherited English institutions such as
the Anglican Church and organizations such as the Red Cross, the Boy
Scouts and the Girl Guides.
