The New Cold War, Canadian Foreign Policy and Canada’s Peace Movement

February 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm CST


  A new cold war has emerged that pits China and Russia against the United States and other NATO members, including Canada.

What do we mean when we say a “new cold war” has broken out and what does this mean for world peace? How will Biden wage this war? How does official Canadian government foreign policy contribute to global instability and the threat of a hot war? What is Canada’s peace movement doing in response, and what might it it do in the future?

Please join us for an interesting discussion of these important issues. It will feature presentations by
