JSGS Announces the 2017 Tansley Lecture – “Canada and President Trump: How do we manage?”




Presented by: Colin Robertson, former Canadian diplomat

For generations, Canada and the United States have shared the most important economic, social and security bilateral relationship in the world. Both nations have reaped the benefits of deeply integrated economies with supply chains that serve a market of approaching 400 million people and framed by the North America Free Trade Agreement. Together, Canada and the U.S. have carved out a relationship that is a model for the world. But with the election of the Donald Trump administration, many of the cornerstones of that relationship are being questioned. Join Colin Robertson as he explores the uncertain and critical era into which Canada-U.S relations are entering.

A former Canadian diplomat, Colin Robertson is a Senior Advisor to Dentons LLP living in Ottawa, and working with the Business Council of Canada. He is Vice President and Fellow at the Canadian Global Affairs Institute, an Executive Fellow at the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy and a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University. He is on the advisory councils of the Conference of Defence Associations Institute and the North American Research Partnership. Colin writes a column every two weeks on foreign affairs for the Globe and Mail and is a regular contributor to other media.
