Abstract(s)
The article is focused on the analysis of British-Canadian relations in connection with the conclusion of the American-Canadian Halibut Treaty of 1923 and its importance for British-Canadian constitutional relations in the context of Canadian efforts to gain independent access in specific bilateral economic relations in North America. The circumstances and discussions that accompanied the negotiation and conclusion of the Halibut Treaty between the United States of America and the Dominion of Canada were all reflected to a large extent in a clearer definition of the constitutional status of the Dominions and the problems of negotiation, conclusion and ratification of international treaties.
L'article se concentre sur l'analyse des relations entre le Canada et la Grande-Bretagne dans le cadre de la conclusion du Traité sur le flétan de 1923 (entre le Canada et les États-Unis) et son importance pour les relations constitutionnelles entre le Canada et la Grande-Bretagne dans le contexte des efforts du Canada pour obtenir un accès indépendant à des relations économiques bilatérales spécifiques en Amérique du Nord. Les circonstances et les discussions qui ont accompagné les négociations et la conclusion du Traité sur le flétan ont toutes été reflétées dans une large mesure par une définition plus claire du statut constitutionnel des Dominions et des problèmes de négociation, conclusion et ratification des traités internationaux.
