Public Record - Non-Partisan Conference on International Trade (Part 1 of 5)


Speakers explore United States–Canada trade relations as part of a conference organized by Scott Brison (the Liberal Party international trade critic), Ottawa, Ont., December 7, 2009.

Liberal Party leader Michael Ignatieff makes opening remarks. The panellists are Maryscott Greenwood (the executive director of the Canadian–American Business Council), Jean-Michel Laurin (from Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters), Rick Bonnette (Mayor of Halton Hills, Ont.), John Hayward (from Hayward Gordon), Brian Lee Crowley (from the McDonald-Laurier Institute). Mr. Hayward presents excerpts from a press conference held by U.S. President Barack Obama to address U.S.–Canada trade issues.

Later, discussion is opened up to audience members with Colin Robertson (from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University) moderating.

Mr. Brison organized these talks in anticipation of “Canada at 150: Rising to the Challenge,” a non-partisan conference scheduled to take place in Montreal in March 2010.
