The CSDC Podcast was present at the Canadian Political Science Association conference this year in Toronto. On this occasion, we recorded this plenary session.
This plenary looks at the possibility of the rise of Trump-inspired populist politics in Canada. Is anti-immigrant sentiment likely to grow? Do attitudes toward trade, foreign policy, and immigration provide a basis for a populist mobilization? What are the strategic incentives for Canada’s political parties? Could Canada’s political institutions adequately defend the country’s democratic principles? Our plenary panelists will use their research to provide insights about these important questions.
