From Dr. Robin Gendron -- David Dyment speaks to the Canadian International Council on December 2

Please join the Nipissing Branch of the Canadian International Council for our next event taking place next Thursday, December 2nd when we'll be hosting Dr. David Dyment who will be speaking on "Doing the Continental: A New Canadian-American Relationship."  The talk will take place from 7-8:30 pm in the Auditorium of the North Bay Public Library at 271 Worthington St E. The event is free and open to the public. Everyone is welcome!
Drawing on his book "Doing the Continental," David Dyment will speak to the challenges and opportunities for Canada in its relations with the United States, including the need for new policies, priorities, and approaches for Canada to keep its interests at the forefront with an American government preoccupied by the strategic, financial, and political challenges that distract its attention from its northern neighbour.  Dr. Dyment will be available to sign copies of his book after the talk.
David Dyment  teaches Political Science at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University, where he is a senior research associate in the Centre on North American Politics and Society.  He has also served on the staff of the Governor General and as a senior analyst in the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade.
