Bruce Heyman, the outgoing U.S. ambassador to Canada, says his offer to help president-elect Donald Trump's transition team get up to the speed on the Canadian relationship has been met with silence. But since that offer, Heyman hasn't heard from the Trump team directly. Heyman said Canada and the United States are so "codependent," the Trump administration will quickly realize how important the relationship is. He said work on border security that passed in the lame duck U.S. Congress this December will help keep goods and people moving at the Canada-U.S. border — even as the president-elect promises to clamp down on border security. From a Canadian perspective, it's trade and travel first, security second.
