Washington’s welcome wagon is out for today’s arrival of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as the White House prepares to host the first state visit by a
Canadian leader in nearly two decades.
Trudeau, along with his wife Sophie and five cabinet ministers will arrive at Andrews Air Force Base this afternoon and attend a reception, ahead of
tomorrow’s sit-down with President Barack Obama and a state dinner at the White House.
Officials have hinted the pair will announce a wide-ranging climate-change agreement, and that Trudeau will throw his support behind a plan that
could speed up cross-border travel.
