Take a look at Canadian foreign policy through the eyes of Senator Hugh Segal, Canada's Special Envoy for Commonwealth Renewal, on how the country's vigorous engagement in the Commonwealth mirrors its much more assertive global role. Now that it has ended its combat mission in Afghanistan Canada's increased defence spending has increased its capacity to allow it to promote its strategic interests through means other than peace keeping and human rights - with a much increased focus on humanitarian capability, and to take a more robust role in responding to threats globally. China, with its growing influence in the Commonwealth, and its burgeoning trade relationship with Canada bolstered by the visit of the biggest Canadian trade delegation means that the US clearly can't be complacent about its trading relationship with its North American neighbour.
