The election of Donald Trump raises deep questions about the future of trade with Canada’s – and Manitoba’s – largest trading partner. During the campaign, Trump signalled a shift to isolationist trade policies, including reopening the 20-year NAFTA.
Will Trump follow through on his anti-trade rhetoric once in office? How can Manitoba prepare for the challenges ahead? Our expert panel will probe what happened in both federal and state elections, and what it means for Manitoba and western Canadians.
