  • If Democratic Party candidate Joe Biden wins the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election, the implications could be considerable for Canada after four years living with the unpredictable and combative Republican President Donald Trump.
  • Biden’s environmental plans and desire to “transition from the oil industry” could pose challenges for Canada, the world’s fourth-largest crude producer.
  • Biden’s ambitious climate change plan, which includes $2 trillion in investment for clean-energy infrastructure over four years, could put pressure on Canada to act more aggressively on its own climate policies.
