The Canada-U.S. Relationship Beyond NAFTA



The Canada-U.S. Relationship Beyond NAFTA

February 8, 2018

On today's Global Exchange Podcast, we continue our discussion on the Canada-U.S. relationship, although this time we go beyond NAFTA as we look at Justin Trudeau's trip to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago. Join Colin in conversation with CGAI Fellows Sarah Goldfeder, Eric Miller, and John Weekes, as they discuss what Trudeau needs to do during his visit down South to foster deeper relations with our American friends. The discussion also touches on American perceptions of Canada, Canada-U.S. cultural relations, and, of course, trade.
