Many Canucks make the mistake of looking at this presidential contest as if they were Americans, and asking how they would vote if they lived in Michigan or Florida. But we live in Canada, and that makes the calculation about who would make the best president a rather different one.

In his fortnightly column for dailies in Halifax and Moncton, AIMS President Brian Lee Crowley suggests that Canadians might be surprised by who the most Canada-friendly choice might be.

In his monthly column in French for Montreal‘s La Presse he also reviews how a Republican victory this November would likely change the US political landscape. (english translation)
