On November 3, Americans are once again heading to the polls for what may be the most polarized election in their history. As the United State's neighbour and closest trading partner, Canada also has a stake in the outcome. Leading up to election day, we’re hosting a three-part series of conversations with some of the most informed and interesting people in the United States, including Gary Cohn and Bob Woodward. We can’t tell you what’s going to happen that day, but we can help you make sense of what’s at stake.
This series of conversations was created with the support of BMO.
