Canada welcomes a fresh start to a rocky relationship with the United States
Under the Trump administration, Canada has had the rockiest relationship on file will with any US President. Trump routinely incited trade wars with Canada and caused uncertainty in the markets affecting many businesses on both sides of the border.
With the election of Joe Biden, Canada’s largest trading partner can once again renew normal working relations. Prime Minister Trudeau was one of the first world leaders to call and congratulate President Elect Biden and Vice President Elect Harris.
The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on the result of the U.S. presidential election:
“On behalf of the Government of Canada, I congratulate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on their election as the next President and Vice President of the United States of America.
“Canada and the United States enjoy an extraordinary relationship – one that is unique on the world stage. Our shared geography, common interests, deep personal connections, and strong economic ties make us close friends, partners, and allies. We will further build on this foundation as we continue to keep our people safe and healthy from the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic, and work to advance peace and inclusion, economic prosperity, and climate action around the world.
“I look forward to working with President-elect Biden, Vice President-elect Harris, their administration, and the United States Congress as we tackle the world’s greatest challenges together.”
