Dr. Christopher Dunn of Memorial University will discuss the trajectory of regionalism in the eastern and western Canada. The Council of Atlantic Premiers and the New West Partnership are the most recent iterations of region-building in Canada. Dunn thinks they should not be the end product. He traces the similarities and differences of the two experiments and shows how they could expand their respective visions.
