Since there is only one serious candidate in the Republican contest for the nomination, Governor Mitt Romney would have to be identified as the candidate who would be “best” for Canada.
Although there is a lot of mythology about whether a Democratic or Republican President is better for Canada, post-War history (ie. post-FDR) indicates that the US deals with Canada on an issue-by-issue basis…basically, there’s a bipartisan approach to US-Canada relations. Canada from the US perspective is partly domestic, partly international..”intermestic” in other words.
