BR G7 Summit Update – CP

QUEBEC – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron are affirming their strong support for world institutions after discussions on how to handle U-S President Donald Trump at the G-7 leaders’ summit.

Trump is no fan of the world’s multilateral institutions, and that has him on a collision course with his fellow G-7 leaders.

Trudeau and Macron have signed a joint statement on multilateralism that Trudeau’s office says reaffirms the strong ties between Canada and France, as well as their commitment to shared values like liberty, democracy, respect for human rights, and the rule of law.

The two leaders also say they are restating their commitment to fight climate change and to promote democratic values, free and open trade, and gender equality.

Trump’s imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on his G-7 partners, as well as broader disagreements on trade and climate change, are setting the stage for some tense face-to-face meetings tomorrow after Trump’s arrival at the Quebec summit.

Trump will hold separate bilateral meetings with Trudeau and Macron and he will also face questions on the tariffs at a broader meeting of G-7 leaders on the state of the world’s economy.

Macron and Trudeau are presenting a united front ahead of the G-7, with the French president tweeting of his country’s “convergence” with Canada.
