POG 410 Canadian Urban Politics

This course provides a critical examination of politics in Canadian cities and the regions that surround them. It explores the coping mechanisms of city-regions, when faced with such forces as physical, economic, and population growth; diversity; globalization; and provincially-mandated restructuring. Central themes include municipal institutions, their development and their operation, and the ways in which key interests interact within urban and suburban areas. (Canadian) Lect: 3 hrs.
