Canusa Street - Intersecting the Canada U.S. Relationship

Dec 8, 2022

50 years ago, Canada and the Soviet Union faced off in an historic hockey summit series at the height of the Cold War. The impact of the series on both countries, hockey itself, and the cross-cutting field of sports diplomacy are felt to this day.

This week, Chris and Scotty are joined by Ambassador Gary Smith, author of Ice War Diplomat, and Andrew Holman, Professor of History and Director of Canadian Studies at Bridgewater University.
