The World in 2018 - Canada amd Mexico

Canada and Mexico - the two countries, one to the north, the other to the south that sandwich the United States(US), will both enter 2018 in a special position as likely sanctuary locations to any Americans disheartened by the Trump administration in Washington, DC. 

Canada will remain the first-nation of choice for many people in 2018 and it has already accepted and will continue to accept refugees who believe their claims for domicile would be rejected under new policies of the Trump administration. Mexico, will witness increased repatriation of Mexicans expelled under new guidelines of the Trump era. 

Canada:

In 2018, Canada will retain its respected title as a peaceful, rational and safe nation. The aura of serenity from Toronto to Vancouver to Halifax to Ottawa and beyond will remain in 2018. The calm and sensible disposition of Canadians will attract many people to the high esteem character that is Canada.

That Canada would be void of any troubles in 2018 would be an error in any assessment of the Maple Leaf nation. Any disturbances to the peace, security and stability of Canada will be minimal in 2018. However, the nation should continue to pay careful attention to some house-keeping matters, including monitoring and dismantling any right-wing or extremist agitations.

The unfolding ethics concerns over the Aga Khan's gifts to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should not pose any governing snags in 2018, but should serve as a reminder to public servants that full disclosure is always necessary of all dealings between the government and those having and wanting business with the government.

In 2018, Canada will develop a method to track and to report the now non-recording of missing Indigenous women. Moreover, Canada could be expected to improve upon its environmental protections in 2018.

The greatest threat facing Canada in 2018 could come in the area of trade as the new administration in Washington, DC, has sought to place close to a-330 percent duty on some Bombardier products imported into the US.

Yet, Canada in 2018 will continue to be a pristine humanitarian nation that offers one of the world's best environments to maintain and to sustain life, liberty and happiness.

Mexico:

If not for the ongoing drug wars, trafficking and the associated stark violence, then Mexico would be an ideal place to live in 2018. But the reality and the widening violence brought to wrought by drug trafficking will continue to affect Mexico's well being.

Earlier this week, the bodies of six-men were discovered hanging from three separate bridges over highways in the highly tourist-attracted place of Los Cabos, Baja California Sur state, in Mexico. The violence of the drug wars in Mexico had previously not extended to the tourist areas. However, the recent discovery of the six-bodies, underscores a stark fact of the seriousness and the danger that illegal drugs, drug trafficking and violence, pose to Mexico in 2018.

Such blatant acts of violence and the insensible way such violence is publicly displayed are direct threats to Mexico's economic and social well being. Any reduction in tourism will have a negative impact upon Mexico's economy. But Mexico's drug problem is not its sole creation. A demand for illegal drugs in the US fuels Mexico's drug wars and the violence. 

Just as an erection of a border-wall between the US and Mexico will not end illegal immigration, such a wall will also not end drug trafficking, nor a demand for illegal drugs. But continued friendly and cooperative relations between Mexico and the US could alleviate many of the problems caused by narcotics trade.

With regards to natural disasters, Mexico, in 2018, could seek to modernize its building codes in order to shore-up much of its urban infrastructure to withstand stronger earthquakes.
