The Quarterly - Volume 2, Number 4
This issue of the Quarterly reports on the five Borderlines Conferences which were convened across Canada in 2002-3. Borderlines: Canada in North America was created to initiate a national discussion on the evolving relationship between Canada and the United States. In the light of the events of September 11th, 2001 and subsequent security measures taken by the United States, there was a concern that our relationship with our closest neighbour would become defined by these events. While trade and security issues remain at the top of both of Canadian and U.S. agendas, many other issues emerge: resource management and co-ordination, the importance of regional north-south trade, bi-lateral versus multi-lateral approaches and the effects of globalization on political and cultural institutions. For detailed information on each of the conferences go to Borderlines.
