Biden in Canada for a cordial visit, but with some delicate issues

Steph Deschamps / March 25, 2023

 

Joe Biden arrived in Canada on Thursday for a visit that promises to be very cordial, but should not evacuate some sensitive issues, related to trade, immigration, military cooperation and Haiti.
 
The American president will first be received with his wife Jill Biden at the residence of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Ottawa for a private evening.
 
On Friday, the two leaders will have a working meeting before Joe Biden addresses the Canadian Parliament.
 
The president will then hold a joint press conference with Trudeau before a gala dinner.
 
This is the first such visit since Barack Obama's in 2009.
 
It is customary for the American president to reserve his first trip to Canada after the inauguration. But because of the pandemic, Joe Biden had to content himself with a virtual "visit" in February 2021.
The trip marks the renewed cordiality between the two countries after the presidency of Donald Trump, who had a notoriously difficult relationship with Justin Trudeau.
