Canada's Liberal Government at Mid-Term: A Report Card

Join us on Friday, February 23, 2018 from 12:00 - 1:30pm for a conversation with Andrew Cohen. Cohen will reflect on the mixed record of the government of Canada two years after Justin Trudeau led the Liberal Party to a surprising victory. At home it has moved cautiously on its major promises while making some bold appointments. Abroad, Trudeau has used his celebrity to re-brand Canada as progressive and tolerant, while struggling to preserve NAFTA. Blessed with a strong economy and a weak opposition, the Liberals remain popular well into their mandate -- largely untouched by missteps, misjudgments and missed opportunities.
