Jeffrey, you wrote that America's massive problems are "testing the skill of Canadian diplomats and the strategic abilities of Stephen Harper’s government." How would you assess their efforts so far?

Hi, I'm Guy Nicholson, an editor with The Globe and Mail's opinions section. We're here today with Jeffrey Simpson to discuss his Wednesday column about Canada's challenge in dealing with the weakened United States.
Please start submitting your questions now - Jeffrey will be online shortly to begin the discussion. As we wait for readers to chime in, I'll start with a question for our columnist.
Jeffrey, some Canadians might have assumed that hard times in the
nited States would create more favourable terms for the country's top trading partner, but this doesn't necessarily seem to be the case. Has America's weakness in any way strengthened Canada's hand?
