Debate posterThe Referendum vote was held three months ago and the new Prime Minister, Theresa May, is preparing the government to trigger the Exit discussions with the EU. Given the uncharted waters under the Lisbon Treaty, Article 50, there is only speculation as to when the UK will pull the Brexit trigger and try to disentangle a large and sophisticated economy like Britain. Experts will touch on the following topics:

  • The administrative, legal and constitutional challenges for UK?
  • The short/long term implications for the UK/EU relations?
  • Implications for Canada for CETA and future bilateral trade agreements?

Moderator for the debate will be Miloud Chennoufi, who teaches international relations at the Canadian Forces College (Toronto), where he chairs the Department of Security and International Affairs.

Debating the issues will be Mel Cappe, professor in the School of Public Policy and Governance, University of Toronto, Glen Hodgson, first Senior Fellow at the Conference Board of Canada, Kevin McGurgan, HM Consul General and Director-General for UK Trade and Investment in Toronto, and Armine Yainizya, senior economist at the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
