Features of the Canadian view that the speaker suggests need to be changed. Geography: making our nation state appropriate to the new larger world arena through our policies; Canada in the no-man's land politically; the effect of our geography on Canadian attitudes to trade, culture and political independence. The feature of economic performance: the questions of the national budget deficit, and the question of our trade relationship with the U.S. Our growing trade relationship with Japan. Risks to our political independence from an uncompetitive economy and unemployment. Making ourselves ready for the future: some suggestions.
