Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
I think that geographic proximity and shared language accounts for more similarity between the US and Canada. Lots of shared borders between big countries. If you live in a border state, you could share more with the people right across the border than someone in the same country thousands of km away. Also shared media, and the ease with which academics (as least they used to) move between US and Canada.
The US is Canada's biggest trading partner and only neighbour. Over 76% of exports. One of the things that Canada exports is (academic) talent. It is a fact of life in Canada that it is almost impossible to isolate yourself from the US. In most academic fields, and a great many professional ones, your opportunity often lies south of the border. Few US professionals need to contemplate moving to Canada - their indigenous market is large enough that it isn't very common.
