Date has been fixed for the first bilateral meeting between Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and United States President, Joe Biden.
The office of the Prime Minister disclosed in an online release that the virtual meeting would hold tomorrow, where both are expected to deliberate on both countries COVID-19 response, climate change, “their bilateral energy relationship, defence and security, and promoting diversity and inclusion.”
In the release, Trudeau said: “Canada and the United States share one of the strongest and deepest friendships between any two countries in the world. It is built on common values, strong ties between our people, and a shared geography.
“I look forward to my meeting with President Biden, where we will work together to end the COVID-19 pandemic and support people in both our countries.”
In the same vein, a statement from the White House by U.S. Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, revealed the meeting would cover a “range of bilateral and global issues.”
The statement read: “In this virtual event, the President will highlight the strong and deep partnership between the United States and Canada as neighbors, friends and NATO Allies.”
The bilateral meeting will occur a week after members of Canadian voted in support of establishing a special committee that will pay attention to the economic relationship between Canada and United States, with Conservatives mentioning the need for a “serious plan for the economic recovery that recognizes the integration of the North American economy.”
The motion passed 326 to 3 as only members of the Green Party voted against the adoption of the committee.
