Please join the Canada Institute for the launch of its 15th One Issue, Two Voices publication, A Safe and Smart Border: The Ongoing Quest in U.S.-Canada Relations. The new issue explores the most recent attempts to make the Canada-U.S. border safer and more efficient through the Beyond the Border Action Plan and the Regulatory Cooperation Council (RCC).

American author Christopher Sands, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, and Canadian author Laura Dawson, president of Dawson Strategic, will discuss the findings of their respective essays and offer analysis on the progress of negotiations on both Beyond the Border and the RCC.

Joining the two authors will be a distinguished panel of stakeholders from both the RCC and Beyond the Border process. The stakeholders will discuss the progress the initiatives have made in thinning our border and better aligning the regulatory regimes of Canada and the United States.
