Why Canada may become a great global power this century

The Canada that exits the Great Quarantine may, by mid-century, become a great power. Or it may, as a mirror opposite, become a deep vassal state.

Canada faces two wildly different futures, one as essentially a vassal state to the US. The other requires us to think and act like a major power.

I don't see Canada playing a big role.  We're very committed to NATO and most of us are proud of that. (if they've heard of NATO) .  We'll remain near the top in CO2 per capita. We'll get refugees but not like Europe.  I hope we'll stop financing new fossil fuel exploration and development even ban it.  We're like that Titanic lifeboat that had extra space but got far enough from the ship to avoid swimmers. (like Leonard Di Caprio)
