Public Record - North American Futures – March 16, 2012 (Part 3 of 5)

Diplomats, scholars, practitioners and media gathered in Vancouver from March 16 to 17 to discuss Canadian, American and Mexican perspectives on the future of North America. This is the second conference on North American Futures jointly organized by the University of British Columbia (UBC) and the University of California, Berkeley. The event builds on the first symposium, which was held March 2010 in Berkeley, California.

The third session on March 16th was titled "Borders: Security, Commerce and Community." The panellists were David Dyment (senior research associate, Centre on North American Politics and Society, Carleton University), Jorge Castañeda (professor of politics and Latin American and Caribbean atudies at New York University) and Jeffrey Simpson (national affairs columnist for The Globe and Mail). The session was moderated by John Helliwell, professor Emeritus of economics at the University of British Columbia.
