Speaker information

Jaime Watt, Executive Chairman, Navigator Ltd.

Jaime Watt, one of Canada’s best known and highest profile political strategists, will be discussing what to expect from Canada in 2016 and also, what happens to the Conservatives in Canada after Harper? Who are the likely front runners to lead the party? 2016 will be a difficult time for the country economically. Resource-rich Canada is feeling the full effects of tanking oil prices which will be a major challenge for the new Liberal Government in the coming year. 2016 will also be an important time for the Conservative party as they start to rebuild after over 11 years of the Harper Government. Jaime Watt is close to all the main Canadian political parties both at a Federal and Provincial level and a regular contributor to the CBC so he is well placed to give an insightful view on what to expect in Canadian politics in 2016.
