The Canada-France Bromance: Possibilities for the Trudeau-Macron Relationship

June 22, 2017

On today's "Global Exchange" Podcast, we look at the recent Presidential and Parliamentary elections in France, where the young centrist leader Emmanuel Macron has won a victory eerily reminiscent of Canada's election won by Justin Trudeau in 2015. Join Colin in discussion with CGAI Fellow Ferry de Kerckhove for an analysis of the recent French elections, the similarities between Trudeau and Macron, as well as the possibility for the development of a liberal alliance led by both leaders to counter the waves of populist sentiment growing throughout the West.

Participant Biographies

  • Colin Robertson (host): A former Canadian diplomat and Vice President of the Canadian Global Affairs Institute and a Senior Advisor to Dentons LLP.
  • Ferry de Kerckhove: Fellow at the Canadian Global Affairs Institute and the Former High Commissioner of Canada to Pakistan, Indonesia, and Egypt.
