BIV on Roundhouse December 11: Will NAFTA negotiations lead to heaven, vampire or zombie land?

December 11, 2017, 10:18am

On the latest show, co-hosts Kirk LaPointe and Hayley Woodin speak to Paul Evans – interim research director of the Institute of Asian Research at the University of British Columbia – about the outcomes of Trudeau’s second trip to China. Evans shares how Canada is exposed to NAFTA negotiations with no plan-B in place. He also questions whether the renegotiation will take Canada to heaven with a dream NAFTA 2.0, to 'vampire land' where the U.S. "sucks Canada dry," or 'zombie land' where nothing comes from the negotiations.

The editor-in-chief of Lift News David Brown weighs in on what B.C. has proposed by way of cannabis regulation. 

Which Canadian cities keep the best books, and which are the worst for business investment? Ben Dachis, associate director of research at the C.D. Howe Institute, shares highlights from two new reports. 

And where are Canada’s sought-after developers? Sean Mullin, executive director of the Brookfield Institute, offers an overview of where Canada’s tech talent lives, what they earn, and how they got their training.
