Paul Cellucci

Paul Cellucci (former American ambassador to Canada) delivers one of the keynote speeches at the 7th annual conference on foreign policy and defence issues organized by the Canadian Defence & Foreign Affairs Institute, Ottawa, Ont., October 27, 2008.

This year’s conference explores four key areas of cross-border relations, including territorial and resource issues, multilateral and unilateral relations and spheres of influence, North American defence issues, and border issues such as cross-border business, immigration, and intellectual property rights.

In his speech, Mr. Cellucci discusses the United States election and how the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) would be targeted by a Democratic majority, which would change the relationship between the U.S. and Canada. After speaking, Mr. Cellucci fields questions from conference attendees.
