Today, Canada's new prime minister Justin Trudeau takes office.

He has a long to-do list, after making a number of dramatic campaign promises, including withdrawing Canadian fighter jets from the fight against ISIS and accepting 25,000 Syrian refugees by the end of the year.

Professor Cecil Foster, director of Canadian Studies at the University at Buffalo, speaks to Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson about how the U.S.'s relationship with Canada may change under Trudeau's administration.
