Canada: Our Friendly Neighbour to the North
From Jeff Layne
Comparative Religion and Humanities Department
Canada is the second largest country in the world and sits just to the north of the United States with the longest undefended border in the world separating the two countries. It is also the US’s second largest trading partner and a staunch ally of the United States in almost every field. Yet Americans know surprisingly little about this interesting country that shares a good deal of heritage with the United State but yet differs from it in important ways. Professor Veidlinger explores the history, politics and society of Canada and will highlight the important artistic and scientific contributions of its relatively small population.
