Trudeau’s failed coup in Venezuela:

January 23 marks the third anniversary since Juan Guaidó declared himself president. The Canadian Foreign Policy Institute will be hosting a discussion about the Liberal’s failed bid to replace the elected government of Venezuela.

On January 23, a little-known Venezuelan politician declared himself president during an outdoor rally in Caracas. The US and Canada immediately recognized Juan Guaidó.

Three-years later will the Liberals stop recognizing Guaidó? Lay the Lima Group to rest? Remove their sanctions on Venezuela?

What does Guaidó’s failure mean for US and Canadian influence in the region?
