2020 U.S. Presidential Election Panel
Please join us for a virtual discussion focusing on the impacts that the upcoming U.S. Presidential election will have on the economies of Ontario and Canada. The event will feature a distinguished panel of professionals from government, finance, and media.
How do the two presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden, stack up on critical issues related to economic growth, transcontinental trade, and climate change? How will recent developments—from the COVID-19 shutdown, social unrest, trade war with China, and an economic recession—influence the outcome of this election? What opportunities could a Biden win potentially create for Ontario and Canada?
The upcoming U.S. Presidential election is shaping up to be one of the most consequential and contentious in modern history. The potential implications for America and Canada are wide-ranging.
