Will the Trump's presidency inhibit Canada's "greatness"? Are there similar undercurrents in Canada to indicate a political change is coming?
An expert panel of academics will provide perspective on contributing factors to the election of Donald Trump and an assessment of whether there is a similar political climate in Canada. The panel will also explore the impact the Trump presidency will have on jurisprudence, Canadian values, and policy areas including environment, energy and healthcare.
