With Faith and Goodwill
150 Years of Canada-U.S. Friendship
For 150 years Canada and the United States have shared something truly unique. The
countries may have the world’s longest unmilitarized border and the most prosperous
free-trade arrangement in history, but what most distinguishes the Canada-U.S. relationship
is neither geographic nor commercial — it’s personal. Our special relationship is the
product of shared values, countless cross-border connections, and generations of combined
experience. Our two countries have grown into more than just friends. We are family.
On the occasion of Canada’s 150th anniversary, With Faith and Goodwill celebrates the ups and downs, the vigour and variety of that family history by showcasing the words and images of prime ministers, presidents, and other dignitaries. From Sir John A. MacDonald to Donald J. Trump and including everyone from Tommy Douglas to Hillary Clinton, this beautifully designed collection of speeches and rarely seen photographs offers a privileged peek into the power politics of Canada-U.S. relations.
