Justin Trudeau starts today on a week-long European sojourn that will culminate in a meeting of 20 of the world’s largest economies.
Trudeau looks to perform delicate G20 balancing act between German Chancellor Angela and Trump and U.S. President Donald Trump.
Before landing in Germany, Trudeau will stop in Dublin to meet with Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and talk up another international trade priority – the Canada-EU trade deal known as CETA.
From there, Trudeau will travel to Scotland for an audience with the Queen to mark Canada’s 150th birthday. The Queen, who is 91, was unable to travel to Canada to celebrate the occasion in Ottawa.
