After a hotly contested race, Canadians will go to the polls on January 23, 2006. While the election itself has elicited little more than a yawn in the United States, a great deal is at stake. Canada is America’s largest trading partner, with annual two-way trade of over $400 billion. It is also this country's largest supplier of foreign energy. And, post–9-11 considerations make cooperation on our northern border central to our common security. Notwithstanding shared interests, interlocked economies, and a common border, Washington and Ottawa have been at daggers drawn in recent months. Will a new government up north bring improvement or more of the same? Who is at fault? What price will the American people pay for further deterioration in U.S.-Canada relations? A panel of experts at AEI will discuss the election results.
