Abstract
The election of Prime Minister J. Trudeau in October 2015 signaled a new chapter in Canada-U.S. relations. After years of chilly distance associated with S. Harper time in office the new Canadian PM stated that he intends to improve relations with the USA. Trudeau and Obama are both hope-and-change oriented leaders, and are ideologically compatible. The problem is that B. Obama is a lame-duck president, and a continuation of current political trends in the USA does not bode well for improvements in Canada-U.S. relations. No one of potential presidential candidates has taken a position supporting a deepening of the current NAFTA. But practically all of them demonstrated protectionist instincts and made statements which can be interpreted as threatening Canadian interests. This means that the Justin Trudeau government may have a difficult time getting U.S. attention focused on the bilateral relationship after the 2016 U.S. election.
