The stability of Canada will remain constant in 2017. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his youthfulness will continue to enjoy much popularity, while earning and attaining the respect and the confidence of greater numbers of his fellow Canadians, many Americans across the border and countless others worldwide.
However, Trudeau's popularity might not be enough to keep Canada immune to all troubles in 2017. But any Canadian troubles in 2017 might be limited to energy exploration and its distribution, some environmental issues and matters concerning the rights of minorities including the First Nations.
Environmental issues related to the Keystone Pipeline and other possible energy works that could effect Canada's pristine eco-systems could bring political dissent and protest. Yet, Canada should be able to weather these concerns in 2017 as immigration spikes from Middle Eastern refugees and from Americans seeking Canadian solace away from an unknown Trump era in the United States(US). Whatever, Canada will prosper well in 2017.
Immigration and the prolonged drug war and its consequences will figure highly in Mexico in 2017. US President-elect Donald Trump's threat of building a wall along the Mexican border and his attack upon NAFTA, will cause distrust and stain relations with Mexicans.
Robust business between the US and Mexico could still materialize in 2017 as Trump's tough stance against some mega money-holders in Mexico appear to be waning even before he takes the oath of office.
The violence brought to wrought by the drug trade and wars between the illegal cartels in Mexico will continue in 2017, but expect Mexico's Federal government, because of extensive pressure from Washington, to do a lot more to combat the illegal drug trade that will continue to consume many lives. Final questions will have to answered as to the disappearance of 43 students in Iguala almost two years ago.
Mexico's 2017 could be consumed very much by beating back against the dreaded proposed wall that it supposedly will pay for, according to the the US President-elect.
