Renewed interest in Canada after two decades

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s global advocacy for liberal pluralism in an era of growing right-wing populism is sparking renewed interest among international news outlets in covering Canadian politics, says columnist Andrew Cohen, as CNN rejoins the Parliamentary Press Gallery for the first time in two decades.
“In a world in which some would say trends are conservative, are regressive on immigration, on women, here you have a country which puts in the window gender parity in cabinet and celebrates the number of refugees and immigrants it takes every year,” he told The Hill Times in a phone interview from Washington, D.C, where he’s serving as a Fulbright scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center. Mr. Cohen has written for several news organizations including the Globe and Mail and Ottawa Citizen.
“That’s a narrative that’s interesting to the international media.”
