What does a Trump presidency mean for Canada? We know that Canada needs the United States, but do they need us? These questions are on the minds of many as our country’s most important political and economic partner begins an unprecedented and unpredictable transition.
Join pollster Nik Nanos as he presents his latest research on how Canadian attitudes toward the United States have shifted in recent months. CBC's Laura Lynch will moderate the evening.
Nanos' presentation will be followed by brief interventions from three respondents: Professor Mark Pickup (SFU Dept of Political Science) as well as Mike Meneer (Democrat) and Jeff Peterson (Republican, though not a Trump supporter) from CBC Radio's 'American Panel'. Following this, presentation, we invite you to take part in a moderated discussion with Nanos on how people-driven movements in the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom have major implications for Canada’s role in the world.
Nik Nanos is the pollster of record for CTV News, Canada’s largest private broadcaster, the Globe & Mail, Canada’s national newspaper, and Bloomberg News in Canada.
