Most people are familiar with the bad actors in the Trump administration that are trying to overthrow the Venezuelan government of Nicolas Maduro, along with the right-wing governments in Latin America that are supporting the US in regime change. Flying under the radar is Canada’s role in the Venezuelan crisis. So the LMC speaks with Donald Kingsbury, whom is a lecturer in Political Science & Latin American Studies @ the University of Toronto, about Canada’s own unique set of skills in regime change.
