JFK's "Alter-Ego" Asks Canada's PM: Why Isn't Canada Hated In The World?

25th September 2007, New York City.

Ted Sorensen, John F. Kennedy's Special Counsel and Adviser, speechwriter, and 'alter-ego', asks Canada's prime minister, Stephen Harper, why Canada isn't hated in the world, in comparison to America's perceived standing.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper answered wide-ranging questions from members of the Council on Foreign Relations, a US-based non-partisan think tank for international affairs. Harper answered questions on a wide range of issues including climate change, the Kyoto Protocol, the differences between the US and Canada, and why America is hated but Canada is not. Harper said there is a high possibility of another minority government after the next federal election, but that Canada's foreign policy would not change even if they achieved a majority.
