Canada Politics is the way in which we will refer to both internal Canadian politics and Canadian world politics. In other words, it is about politics from a Canadian perspective.
Canada has benefited from, and suffered from, its close interactions with the USA. Fortunately, given the very long common land boundary, Canada shares most values with the USA and the two countries have maintained extremely good relations - even to the extent of having an open border.
However, the very presence of the world's superpower on the doorstep is a challenge. The other key ongoing factor in Canada's international relations is the very significant French area in an otherwise English speaking country. While the two-languages approach has been very successful, there are tensions around the relationships resulting from this unusual arrangement. The issue is very much about politics - and one way of dealing with it is to avoid it as an issue.
Is it time to get in touch about building your political team to tackle issues like this?
