TRUDEAU TO MEET VIRTUALLY WITH BIDEN ON TUESDAY
The first face-to-face meeting between Canada’s prime minister and the newly minted U.S. president will take place early this week, the two countries announced on the weekend amid questions about how the longtime allies plan to address simmering tensions that have already emerged despite the new regime in the White House. Both Trudeau’s office and the press secretary for President Joe Biden issued statements saying the two leaders plan to convene virtually Tuesday. The White House statement said ministers from both cabinets would also be meeting that day. The session is being billed as the first bilateral meeting between the two countries since Biden took office on Jan. 20, although the leaders held a lengthy phone call days after the new president was sworn in.
