Justin Trudeau and the Politics of Federalism

Monday, January 27, 2020 17:00to19:30
Faculty Club Ballroom, 3450 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 0E5, CA

MISC is partnering with McGill's Max Bell School of Public Policy and the Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP) to present a panel of experts who will be discussing the implication of the results of the 2019 Federal Elections: 

"Justin Trudeau and the Politics of Federalism" 

On December 2, the premiers met in Toronto and formulated a number of demands for the new Trudeau minority government to address. How will the Prime Minister and his government address these demands and other pressures stemming from provincial mobilization and the politics of federalism more generally? How will Trudeau and his team find a way to address regional grievances while advancing a unifying policy agenda on issues such as fiscal federalism, health care, trade, Indigenous rights, climate change, and natural resources? Finally, and more generally, what are the issues that are particularly crucial for intergovernmental relations in the context of a federal minority government?

The panel will feature Chantal Hébert of the Toronto Star, Daniel Béland of MISC, Christopher Ragan of Max Bell and will be moderated by Jennifer Ditchburn of IRPP. 

The event will take place on Monday, January 27, beginning at 5PM at the McGill Faculty Club, in the Ballroom. There will be a cocktail following the panel.
