Here’s what was on the agenda this week:
CANADA AND PRESIDENT TRUMP
Friday marks the start of Donald Trump’s presidency, and while Washington, D.C. prepares for its big Inauguration Day, Canadians are wondering what the impact will be for our home and native land. Evan and John discussed how the federal government plans to position itself on NATO, trade, and more—and how Canada’s retooled cabinet will work with Trump’s.
TRUDEAU’S ROAD SHOW
The prime minister, on the other hand, won’t be at Trump’s inauguration—he’ll be continuing his tour in smaller cities and communities across Canada, looking to reconnect with Canadians. So far, it’s brought both cheers and jeers. Evan and John broke down the impact of the tour so far.
