Synopsis

In Mr Smith Goes to Ottawa, the author compares the 34th

(1988-93) and the 35th (1993-97) Parliaments. The former, the second

consecutive Conservative-led majority government, could not appear more

different from the Liberal one which followed. Over two-thirds of its

members were rookies. More significantly, over one-third represented

two new political parties - the Bloc Quebecois and the Reform

party.









Yet, for all this change, Docherty shows that the new agendas of the

35th Parliament have not translated into changes in the legislative

behaviour or socialization of new members. Unlike Jimmy Stewart in

Washington, the majority of the men and women who go to Ottawa end up

accepting a limited policy role.
