2018 Speaker Dinner: Canada - U.S. Relations in the Age of Trump featuring Conrad Black

Recent political developments in the United States have created concern about the state of relations between the U.S. and Canada among many on both sides of the border. To provide insight on how these developments impact Canadians, the Canadian Global Affairs Institute is hosting the CGAI Speaker Dinner: Canada-U.S. Relations in the Age of Trump. This inaugural speaker event will explore the challenges facing the bi-lateral relationship.

Lord Conrad Black is our guest speaker for the high-profile dinner event on March 6, 2018. At this event Lord Black and Colin Robertson, CGAI Vice President and former Canadian diplomat, will discuss the current state of relations between the North American partners and allies.
