“Until I came here, I’m not sure I understood the depth of the problem,” says David L. Cohen, the new U.S. ambassador to Canada. Cohen is talking about the “breach of trust” between Canada and the United States in recent years, a mutual suspicion that skyrocketed during the Donald Trump presidency and hasn’t recovered. Paul Wells talks to Cohen about restoring trust, working together on energy and climate, and how Cohen became the second-base coach for his son’s T-ball league.

The Paul Wells Show is produced by ANTICA, in partnership with the National Arts Centre and the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy. It is published by the Toronto Star and iPolitics. Our founding sponsor is TELUS and the title sponsor is Compass Rose.
