According to this insightful article from Project Syndicate, this week marks Canada’s first change of government in nearly a decade. The article tries to understand what the change will mean for Canada’s relations with the world. The authors suggest that the start point requires taking stock of Canada’s international posture under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s predecessor, Stephen Harper.
