CIC Edmonton: Politics @ the Pub: Making Sense of It All- The Impact of the US Election on Europe and Canada

February 15, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EST


Mark your calendars for February 15!

The Canadian International Council (CIC) Edmonton Branch invites you to its first Politics @ The Pub event of 2017 at Devaney’s Pub on February 15th, at 5:30 p.m.

The unexpected election of President Trump poses significant questions, concerns and opportunities for Canada’s relationship with its largest trading partner and historical ally. These policy issues include the potential renegotiation of NAFTA, withdrawal from TPP, immigration and refugees, NATO, and climate change and energy policy.

Europe is also facing a shift in its relationship with the United States, with issues related to immigration and social policy, the future of the European Union, relations with Russia, and the rise of right wing populism having emerged as real following the election of President Trump.

Three distinguished expert panelists will be joining us to help us make sense of these questions and more – Dr. Greg Anderson, Dr. Tom Keating and Dr. Susan Smith. The panel discussion will be followed by a short question and answer session with the audience.
