Canada's Defence Policy Review: What Does it Mean? 

June 8, 2017

On today's "Global Exchange" Podcast, we take a look at Canada's defence policy review (DPR). Join Colin in conversation with CGAI defence analyst David Perry for a run-down on what Canada's DPR has planned for the country's armed forces. Also on the Podcast are two defence experts -- Richard Fadden & Yves Brodeur -- who look at the implications of the DPR moving forward, and the difficulties that may come with implementation.

An Update on the NAFTA Renegotiations

May 21, 2018


On today's Global Exchange Podcast, we touch base with CGAI's North American trade experts in light of a busy week on the NAFTA file in Washington. After months of hard-pressed negotiations, and 6 weeks of 'perpetual' discussions in Washington, the deal has reached its next turning point, with Congressional leadership signalling that they'd need a new deal by May 17th in order to have it passed before U.S. mid-term elections in the Fall. With no deal in sight, and the Congressional deadline now in the rear-view mirror, we sit down with Sarah Goldfeder, Laura Dawson, and Eric Miller to ask where we go from here.
