From Lexis Nexis a stunning coffee table book:

It’s the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation and we’re marking this historic event with the release of a one-of-a-kind publication, Canada at 150: Building a Free and Democratic Society. This pictorial celebration commemorates 150 years of Canada’s legal and constitutional democracy as well as the 35th anniversary of the Constitution Act, 1982 and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Featuring a collection of more than 50 curated essays on major political and historical developments in Canadian constitutional history written by key commentators and figures combined with lavish images of iconographic Canadian historical and contemporary individuals and landmarks, this book offers an insightful, balanced look at Canada’s constitutional past and present, highlighting our achievements while acknowledging persistent injustices.
