Ambassador MacNaughton will discuss the Canada – US relationship moving forward with a new president set to take office on January 20th, 2017. He will also highlight the benefits both countries enjoy through an ongoing and open dialogue about shared concerns relating to our economic, security and infrastructure needs.
"Addressing America's infrastructure needs will mean addressing long term economic and security needs for both Canada and the U.S.," says CCPPP President and CEO Mark Romoff.
