Listen to "2020 Division: Foreign Policy Fails and a Fractured Political Year Ahead" on Spreaker. On the first episode of 2020, host Andre Goulet greets a new decade with SFU/UBC polisci academic and politics pundit Stewart Prest to investigate the Liberal government's frustrating foreign policy record, including an update on Huawei scion Meng Wanzhou's extradition case and Canada/China relations and why ex-foreign minister Chrystia Freeland's support for the South American far-right has been a moral failure.

Plus: a look at where party politics stand in early 2020 and what to expect for the year ahead. This conversation was recorded on Monday, January 13th.
