McGill University
Leacock Building, Room 232
855 Sherbrooke Street West, Montreal

 Directions: Upon entering the McGill University campus through the main gates on Sherbrooke and McGill College, walk straight along the main path. In the horizon will be a neo-classical building flying the McGill flag. The Leacock building is to the left of this building.

Canada’s relations with the United States are broad and deep, and with Barack Obama in the White House, the two countries are entering what could be a new era of hope and renewal.  From water and energy policy to defence, environmental strategy, and Arctic sovereignty, author David Dyment provides an astute, pithy analysis of the past, present, and future continental dance between two countries that have much in common yet often step on each other’s feet.
