June 15, 2017

On today's episode of The Global Exchange Podcast, we look back to CGAI's May 2nd conference entitled 'A World in Disarray: What Role for Canada?'. Join Colin in conversation with three of Canada's most prolific public figures -- John Manley, Bob Rae, and Jean Charest -- for a conversation on the state of the world in light of Brexit and the Trump Presidency, and what role Canada can play moving forward.
