CIC Nipissing: Canada Alone, Navigating the Post-American World

February 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm EST

CIC Nipissing District Branch invites you to a free presentation and discussion on Wednesday, February 28, 2024:

Canada Alone, Navigating the Post-American World 

Dr. Kim Richard Nossal, Professor Emeritus, Department of Political Studies and Centre for International and Defence Policy Studies, Queen’s University

About the presentation:

Canada must prepare for an isolationist and unpredictable neighbour to the South should a MAGA leader gain the White House in 2025. The American-led global order has been increasingly challenged by Chinese assertiveness and Russian revanchism. As we enter this new era of great-power competition, Canadians tend to assume that the United States will continue to provide global leadership for the West.

Canada Alone sketches the more dystopian future that is likely to result if the illiberal, anti-democratic, and authoritarian Make America Great Again movement regains power. Under the twin stresses of a reinvigorated America First policy and the purposeful abandonment of American global leadership, the West will likely fracture, leaving Canadians all alone with an increasingly dysfunctional United States. Canada Alone outlines what Canadians will need to navigate this deeply unfamiliar post-American world.
