The election of U.S. President Donald Trump on November 8th , 2016 signaled a major shift in U.S. policies with respect to international trade, security, immigration and climate policy, to name but a few. During the first few weeks President Trump did begin to implement many of his campaign promises, causing America’s allies to play “catch up.”
While Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s approach towards our southern neighbour has been well-handled so far, we still do not fully understand what may happen to key Canada-U.S. files such as free trade, border security, softwood lumber and defence cooperation.
This fourth annual School of Public Policy Geopolitical Speakers Series invites well-known experts in the fields of trade, security and American politics to examine Trump’s first 100 days in office and assess what it means for Canada. Since our relationship with the United States is always a critical issue for Canada, this public conference is both timely and very topical.
