Celebrate the Canada-US relationship with the Macdonald-Laurier Institute!

There can be no more important issue facing Canada than the future of its relationship with its neighbour, ally and largest trading partner, the United States.

Yet while the stakes are huge, Canadians are faced with a confounding lack of information and insight into what is driving the thinking of the American political leadership and public opinion, whether on NAFTA, NATO, the Middle East, the Indo-Pacific or a host of other issues.

That’s why MLI has created THE event of 2018 bringing the best and the brightest from both sides of the border to chart a course for the future of Canada-US relations. Just some of our speakers include:

Congressman Pete Sessions, (R-TX), Chairman of the House Rules Committee and one of the top leaders of the Republicans in Congress;

Kelly Craft, the new US Ambassador to Canada, recently appointed by President Donald Trump;

Frank Buckley, a Canadian who is one of President Donald Trump’s speechwriters; and

Laura Dawson, MLI Munk Senior Fellow and Director of the Canada Institute.

Under the broad theme of 'The Future of Canada-US Relations' our panelists will explore issues facing the Trump and Trudeau governments, including NAFTA negotiations, border security and military cooperation, moderated by former Canadian Ambassador to the US, Frank McKenna.

Due to this impressive panel of speakers, tickets are selling quickly. Be sure to get yours today!
