Evidence suggests that citizens outside larger urban centers are less prone to use the various functionalities of e-government, while they are the most likely to benefit from these services. Few studies have been performed to understand rural citizens’ attitudes. Our purpose was to identify factors that influence the use of e-government services in...

Despite the promise of Internet surveys, there are significant concerns about the representativeness of the sample and survey instrument effects. This article seeks to address these questions by examining the differences and similarities between parallel Internet and telephone surveys conducted in Quebec after the provincial election in 2007.

A central condition for liberal democracy to persist is that the authorities implement what they said they were going to do. The actions of the authorities, or policies, are here observed through the Inaugural Speeches which list what the governments would do in the following months. The content of those addresses is compared to the content of the...

The paper examines the electoral consequences of the Parti Québécois' decision in the fall of 1982 to reduce expenditures by drastically cutting wages in the public sector. In so doing, the Parti Québécois was attacking a group which was part of its core clientele. The episode offers the possibility of testing the proposition that a party which ign...
Article
  Based on survey evidence in 13 post-communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe, we show that citizens who engage in protest activities are more tolerant than those who do not take part in such activities. We argue that these ‘protesters’ have the potential to play a pivotal role in the democratic consolidation process currently under way i...

In this paper, we argue that, when measuring government growth, we should distinguish among three growth phenomena: growth resulting from the broader scope of government activity, referred to as real growth; growth that results from higher costs of providing government goods and services, referred to as deflator effect; and growth in the simple rat...

No matter the tradition to which they affiliate themselves, case-oriented or variable-oriented, policy analysts increasingly agree on the potential of a comparative methodology for the advancement of knowledge. Our thesis is that the 10 Canadian provinces offer a superb laboratory for testing hypotheses and building theories in policy analysis. Ind...
Article

Using time-series and time-series cross-section data from the 10 Canadian provinces, the authors test several competing explanations of government growth. Multivariate analyses reveal that the results are sensitive to how government size is measured. The authors find strong empirical support for the intergovernmental grants, the bureau voting, and...
Article
Full-text available
This study tests explanations of the growth of Canadian provincial governments that draw from the political budget cycle approach. The approach assumes that governments jointly respond to electoral and partisan goals. When the next election is not expected soon, the government uses its discretionary power to pursue its ideological target. When the...

A great number of polls have been made public by the media during the 1985 electoral campaign in Quebec. The polls correctly predicted the winning party, but were not very good for forecasting the actual vote. A difference of 3 percent has been observed between the prediction and the vote with respect to the Liberal party and third parties consider...
Article
La théorie démocratique fait une large place à l'information. Elle veut, en effet, qu'un public bien informé des enjeux et des candidats à une élection soit en meilleure position pour effectuer des décisions rationnelles. De nos jours, le public québécois reçoit sans doute plus d'informations que jamais auparavant et la masse de ces informations lu...

During a game, several agents, pursuing the objectives of a partisan organization, interact. It sometimes happens that the rules of the game do not anticipate completely the actions that ought to b...

Is it fruitful to consider electoral results as the product of collective decisions, as suggested by Vincent Lemieux in his study of provincial elections in Quebec? In order to answer this question, the authors applied the same approach to new data, the results of federal elections in Quebec from 1957 to 1965. It is first noted that the operational...
