Reviews
Fritz Ward, Ph.D., Amazon top reviewer

"Americans often assume they know their Northern neighbor. Bill Seavey examines U.S./Canadian relations from two focal points: politics and personal relationships.  He finds we need fewer assumptions--and more understanding--if the U.S. wants to keep on good terms with their biggest and most important trading partner."

Jay Skiles, JD, Management Consultant

"The runnuing joke when I was in college is that the U.S. treats Canada like the 51st state.  Despite the handful of armed disagreements back in the day, Canada has been a steadfast partner to us and we can learn and benefit from one another"

Nancy Marley-Clarke, speechwriter for Pierre Trudeau

"Bravo to Bill Seavey.  He brings into sharp focus the many cultural similiarities between Canadians and Americans...while flagging the differences"

AmeriCanada? Author Begins Lecture Program in California

The first of several lectures by William Seavey on current U.S./Canada relations post-Trump's election was presented recently before an interested audience in San Luis Obispo, California in early February. 

The topic focused on how Canada's policies can have a positive influence on California's (gun control, marijuana legalization, health care etc.)

Seavey's book is the first by an American in 40 years to distill the differences between Canadians and Americans and propose solutions to some of the cross border issues that have divided the two countries (recent challenges to Nafta, Keystone XL pipeline, border logjams etc.)

Other lectures are planned by invitation. A video of the lecture highlights is available at americanada.us.
