From the Rotman School of Management:
As Minister of Finance under then Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, the late Michael Wilson shaped some of the most impactful economic policies in generations. From the negotiation of Canada-US Free Trade Agreement (which led to NAFTA), to the introduction of the controversial Goods and Services Tax (GST), Wilson dramatically impacted the Canadian business and economic landscape. After his life in Parliament, Wilson served as Ambassador to the United States and Chancellor of the University of Toronto. In this special in-conversation event, the Right Honourable Brian Mulroney will discuss with Senator Pamela Wallin the legacy his collaboration with Wilson and how it continues to shape Canada to this day.
