A pop up forum – Trump and Us: What Next?

Northumberland Learning Connection will present a pop up forum on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 2 pm, with Michael Enright and Robert Bothwell, moderated by Karin Wells, at C.R. Gummow Public School, 311 Cottesmore Avenue, Cobourg.

Just prior to the US election last November, Northumberland Learning Connection presented a sold-out pop-up forum Hillary, Donald and Us.    Both panelists told the audience that they felt sure Hillary Clinton would win the election, though probably by a small margin. The following Sunday, Michael Enright admitted nationwide on CBC radio’s The Sunday Edition, that he had clearly misled the good people of Port Hope about the election!

Michael Enright and Bob Bothwell have agreed to return one year later to discuss the presidency of Donald Trump.  Moderated again by Karin Wells, a retired radio journalist, they will explore current issues, critical to Canada and the rest of the world.  How might American's most unpredictable president affect Canada?  Will Trump scrap NAFTA?  How much is Donald Trump fueling the alt-right?   Should Justin Trudeau thank Trump for his popularity both in Canada, and worldwide?  What about North Korea?  What should be done about US immigration policy and asylum seekers arriving from the US into Canada?  What price populism?

Michael Enright is host of CBC Radio One’s The Sunday Edition, and is the broadcaster’s resident expert on US presidential races, having covered eleven to date.

Robert Bothwell is professor of international relations at the Munk School of Global Affairs, at the University of Toronto, and a much published specialist on Canada-US relations.
