Living next to such a powerful neighbour has its ups and downs. When things go bump in the US, Canada usually feels the impact. Sometimes that impact is good and sometimes it’s not. The iAffairs’ Canada-US section is dedicated to tracking those impacts, examining them from all sides, and presenting the Canadian perspective. In a relationship that is as far reaching as the one between Canada and the US, there are few subjects that are left untouched. However, on a day to day basis it is generally trade, energy and security issues that drive this longstanding alliance. While the majority of our coverage will focus on these areas, we aim to be inclusive of all issues that relate to Canada-US relations.
