Canada on the World Stage: Past, Present and Future

When Justin Trudeau became prime minister, he announced to the world: "Canada is back!" Professor Chapnick explores what it means to "be back." What are Canada's interests on the world stage and how can and should the Canadian government pursue them? Does Canada really have the power to make a difference? And how has Canadian foreign policy changed, or not changed, over the years?

This event is part of the Spring 2017 Speaker series.
