The Canadian International Council (CIC) National Capital Branch invites you to the first Politics @ The Pub event of 2017, a panel discussion on ‘Canada in the Age of Trump’, to take place on Monday, February 20th.
The new Trump administration has promised sweeping policy reforms regarding the economy, trade, immigration, refugees, climate change policy, foreign policy and more. Some changes are already in motion, such as the withdrawal of the US from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the renegotiation of NAFTA, the suspension of US entry by citizens of seven Muslim-majority nations, and the ban on Syrian refugees.
With the United States being a global power as well as Canada’s neighbour and largest trading partner, how does the new administration affect Canada, our economy, our relations with the US, our political rhetoric, and our international responsibilities? How can and how should the Canadian government respond to the Trump administration?
Join us on Monday February 20th, as our panel of experts discusses the impact of the new Trump administration on Canada.
