The blog here sourced from IDEA, a pre-eminent democracy organization, covers Canada and the recent invoking of the Emergency Act by the government.

It is posted here as a good example of how IDEA uses its democracy indicators index to produce an overall analysis of state and progress of democracy in a country.

We recommend that students of democracy study and learn from IDEA’s excellent work.
