Prime Minister to talk free trade in California
Ronald Reagan's free trade legacy will be on full display today when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau makes his last plea to lawmakers to keep American doors open to trade.
The Reagan library in Simi Valley in California will serve as the backdrop for a speech Trudeau will give to local, state and federal legislators.
Trudeau has tried to make the case to Americans during this four-day swing through the United States that trade has been a boon for their country, despite their concerns.
In Chicago, he suggested that ending that trade would cause economic disruption that could hurt Trump politically.
And in San Francisco's Silicon Valley yesterday, Trudeau pushed Toronto as a place for Amazon's second headquarters during a private meeting with the company's chief executive.
Before the meeting with Jeff Bezos, Trudeau said he hoped Canada's largest city would land the expected five-billion dollar U-S project that could result in 50-thousand jobs.
The PM didn't say what his government was willing to offer to land the project.
