Canada is a peaceful country in a turbulent world. Today’s global security threats are complex and multiple, ranging from the spread of violent extremism to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and cyber attacks. In an interconnected world, no country is immune from these threats. At the same time, many countries are withdrawing their commitment to peacekeeping operations, and international arms treaties are being abandoned and a new nuclear arms race is under way. What is Canada’s role in this new security global security landscape? What steps can the next government take toward building a more secure world?   Join our panel of expert for a lively discussion of the main security and defence issues to consider ahead of the election.
