Canusa Street - Intersecting the Canada U.S. Relationship

Feb 16, 2022

Canada/US relations just experienced a major shock when truck protesters closed several border crossings including the Ambassador Bridge which carries one-quarter of all bilateral trade and is the busiest commercial crossing in the world. This came after weeks of the so-called “freedom convoy” arrived in Ottawa and was emulated in other capitals in Canada, the US and Europe. Canusa Street hosts Chris and Scotty talk with a journalist who has been covering the unrest in Canada since it began. Emma Jacobs is a dual citizen living in Montreal and reporting for NPR and other international outlets. Chris and Scotty also pause to reflect on the impact that these protests are having on Canada/US relations.
