2020: The Year Ahead
The Maclean’s annual Year Ahead issue is devoted to forecasting the twists and turns of the coming months and how they will change the world.
This year’s edition makes some of the boldest predictions to date: leadership crises in Canada’s major federal parties, a seismic shift in the White House, the ominous return of an enemy of the West, a shrinking royal family, the dawn of quantum computing, the dire state of Arctic sea ice, and a historic performance at the Tokyo Summer Olympics.
It features 20 people poised to make a big mark in 2020, 12 can’t-miss events, seven Canadian celebrities waxing whimsical on their perfect “leap-year day,” and four preposterous (but hilarious) events we admit might never happen. Terry Glavin, Cindy Blackstock, Jane Philpott and others weigh in on democracy, justice and the opioid emergency.
