Abstract:

Canada and Russia are on speaking terms again. Our government has abandoned Stephen Harper's policy of vocal disdain and the attempted isolation of Russia. We stand against Russian?interference? in Ukraine but, in the words of Global Affairs Minister, Stephane Dion,?the more we disagree, the more we have to discuss.? This paper describes the setting of Canada-Russia re-engagement in terms of current tension in East -West, NATO -Russia relations and of heightened Canadian foreign policy aspiration; rehearses the case for earnest, long-term Western and Canadian engagement, with investment of senior attention and talent; cautions that, though a bit of spring has sprung, there is a lot of ice to thaw, as bilateral sanctions are l ikely to be lifted only in step with allies and the implementation, halting at best, of the Minsk peace plan; assesses Russia's vulnerabilities and the record of its interventions in Georgia, Ukraine and Syria; recommends active Canadian support, by all means, for Ukrainian-Russian reconciliation and for a better fence, a?mending wall? between Russia and NATO; and suggests formats and first steps toward the normalization of bilateral and multilateral relations with our Arctic neighbour.
