CIC Vancouver Island: Canada Alone: Navigating the Post-American World

November 29, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm PST



This is a not-to-be-missed event with Professor Kim Nossal discussing his new book, “Canada
Alone: Navigating the Post-America World.”

“Canada Alone” sketches a dystopian future where we are likely to see the illiberal,
anti-democratic, and authoritarian “Make America Great Again” movement regain
power and dominate American politics in the 2020s. This will have profound foreign
policy consequences: if a MAGA Republican — either Donald J. Trump himself or a
Trumpian candidate — becomes president in 2025, the West will likely fracture under
the twin stresses of a re-invigorated America First policy and the purposeful
abandonment of American global leadership.

This would leave Canadians, for the first time in their history, all alone in North America with an
increasingly dysfunctional United States. Canada Alone outlines what Canadians will need to navigate
this deeply unfamiliar post-American world. Kim Nossal is professor emeritus in the Department of
Political Studies and a fellow in the Centre for International and Defence Policy at Queen’s University
in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.

Speakers Biography:

Kim attended the University of Toronto in the early and mid-1970s, receiving all his degrees from that
institution: B.A. (1972), M.A. (1974) and Ph.D. (1977). In 1976, he joined the Department of Political
Science at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, and taught there for twenty-five years, serving as
chair of the Department from 1992 to 1996. In 2001 he went to Queen’s
University as the head of the Department of Political Studies, a position he held
until 2009. From 2011 to 2013, he was the director of the Centre for International
and Defence Policy, and from 2013 to 2015, served as Chair of Policy Studies
and the director of the Queen’s School of Policy Studies. He retired from
Queen’s in 2020.
