Inside Our Boardroom: John Ibbitson, Award-Winning Political Journalist

Earlier this week, The Globe and Mail’s Writer-at-large John Ibbitson stopped by the Speakers’ Spotlight boardroom to share his insights on a wide range of topics at the top of many Canadians’ minds. In the clip above, he touched on our current government and how we might see events play out as America’s 45th president, Donald Trump, makes his mark.

Ibbitson’s illustrious career as an author and as a journalist covering politics in Canada and Washington mark him as a leading voice for navigating the years ahead. He evaluates some of the pros and cons and multiple futures Canada could encounter when it comes to domestic jobs, international trade, and overarching Canadian values, and he does so with the steady, considered, and thoughtful approach that has made him a sought-after voice in Canada’s media landscape.

Watch the video above to see firsthand what he thinks Trudeau is up against going ahead.
