Perry Rand Dyck (born 1943 in Calgary, Alberta[1]) is the author of the Canadian Politics: Critical Approaches textbook which is used in many Canadian universities, and taught to students studying Political Science, Law, Economics, Women's Studies, Philosophy, Anthropology, Sociology, and History. Since 1993, Dr. Dyck has participated in the organisation of the Laurentian University Model Parliament, an event which has been featured in Maclean's magazine. He currently teaches at Carleton University and Our Lady Seat of Wisdom College as an adjunct professor and also at Nunavut Sivuniksavut in Ottawa. He won the Teaching Excellence Award at Laurentian University[2] and the OCUFA Teaching Excellence Award in 2002 and the Faculty of Public Affairs Teaching Award at Carleton University in 2014.

Model Parliament

Dyck was responsible for the creation of the Laurentian University Model Parliament, or (LMP), in 1993.[3] Since that time, the LMP has been organized by the Laurentian University Political Science Association. In previous years, participants to the LMP have included Laurentian students, as well as those at the Georgian College University Partnership Centre campuses in Barrie and Orillia; and students from Laurentian's affiliate, Algoma University College in Sault Ste. Marie.

The LMP meets every January. Past LMP bills debated at the annual session have dealt with such topics as: the role of the federal government in education and training; promoting sexual education in Canada; increasing the budget of the CBC and Radio-Canada; forgiving outstanding student loans; creating a national registry of sex offenders; creating an elected Senate; reinstating capital punishment; reforming the correctional system by transferring some of its functions to the Canadian Department of National Defence; using toll booth revenues in the province of Quebec to fund the teaching of French to Anglophones in Quebec; and abolishing the monarchy in Canada.

Since 1998, this event has been held in the legislative chamber of the Canadian House of Commons.[3] In addition to the use of the legislative chamber, the House of Commons generously provides the services of simultaneous interpreters, microphone operators, pages, and rooms for caucus meetings.
