Great Expectations: Barack Obama Comes to Canada

CPAC’s Bill Luxton speaks with Canadian citizens, politicians, and experts to discuss their hopes for United States President Barack Obama’s first foreign visit to meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, scheduled for February 19, 2009.

Bill speaks with Roland Paris (director of the University of Ottawa Centre for International Policy Studies), Hugh Segal (Conservative Senator), and Jim Munson (Liberal Senator). Topics of discussion include Canada’s military role in Afghanistan and concerns about so-called “Buy American” protectionist legislation being considered as part of a U.S. economic stimulus package.
