Interview and Report
Canada, the United States, and changing foreign policies
Canada and the United States are each other’s biggest trading partners, we also take up almost all of North America. Since the attacks of September 11, 2001, common security has been seen as a necessary goal.

To find out how our relationship has been developing since the events of 9/11, and since the election of the majority Conservative government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper, RCI’s Wojtek Gwiazda spoke with Professor Denis Stairs, a Senior Research Fellow with the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute (CFDAI). They also discussed Canada’s growing attention to Asia and Latin America.

They started with a question on whether Canada was a junior partner to the United States in the war on terror.
