"Vote early, vote often--Why the voting age should be lowered to 16." Economist 422 (9026): 10 February 4, 2017.

Chalifour, Nathalie J. "Canadian climate federalism: Parliament's ample constitutional authority to legislate GHG emissions through regulations, a national cap and trade program or a national carbon tax." National Journal of Constitutional Law / Revue nationale de droit constitutionnel 36 (2): 331-407, November/novembre 2016.

* Climate change is perhaps the quintessential issue for engaging the tools of cooperative federalism and progressive interpretation of our Constitution.

Dodek, Adam M. "Omnibus bills: Constitutional constraints and legislative liberations." Ottawa Law Review / Revue de droit d'Ottawa 48 (1): 1-41, 2017.

* Ultimately, this paper concludes that in the absence of action by Parliament itself, the courts may be forced to find a way to restrict the most abusive uses of omnibus bills.

Hunter, Josh. "Renovating Canada's constitutional architecture: an examination of the government's democratic reform initiatives." Constitutional Forum / Forum constitutionnel Special Issue 25 (3): 15-32, 2016.

Jennings, Sarah. "Extreme makeover." Literary Review of Canada 25 (1): 10-13, January/February 2017.
