Trudeau highlights trade, democracy, and freedom in Philadelphia

By Majesty 4 Min Read

On his Tuesday trip to Philadelphia, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated that there is still much to be done to support progressive principles and workers in both Canada and the United States. 

After accepting an invitation to speak at a large union conference, I had meetings with notable figures including Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro and Vice President Kamala Harris. 

It was his first visit to a nation beneath the US since he launched a new sales initiative known as “Team Canada.” This tactic was first used when trade disputes cast doubt on the US-Canada relationship during Donald Trump’s first term as president.

Meetings with members of the US Congress, state and local governments, corporate executives, and others were part of the strategy to ensure that everyone understood and agreed that a positive relationship with Canada is beneficial to both nations. 

Though it didn’t entirely vanish, the strategy lost steam once Joe Biden was elected president. As a result, the US government is now more in line with the liberals’ beliefs and agenda. 

Both Trudeau and Harris addressed the SEIU on Tuesday, discussing issues such as lowering the cost of healthcare, defending the right to an abortion, and increasing wages. 

Their speeches were strikingly alike. By being present, Trudeau claimed he was not endorsing Biden; rather, he claimed he was not taking a side in an election held in another nation. 

Whether Trump decides to run for president in November or not, Trudeau and Canada’s ambassador to the United States, Kirsten Hillman, said their country would take the same action. Reporters were informed by Trudeau that this message is always crucial.

When asked how concerned he is about Trump winning the presidency again, Trudeau stayed nothing. What has historically worked ought to work again, he added. 

According to Trudeau, we observed under Mr. Trump’s presidency that imposing tariffs or other protectionist measures on Canada would negatively impact American workers, which is a valid reason to refrain from doing so. 

I brought up the fact that Pennsylvania sells more to Canada than it does to the next four nations put together because of this today.” 7.8 million Americans, according to Canada, are fond of something. Trade between the US and Canada has created jobs for a large number of people in the US and Canada, respectively. 

Shapiro, who was elected governor for the first time just two years prior, appeared to become a new friend for him. Shapiro is seen as a significant figure in the US Democratic Party and is considering a 2028 presidential bid. Before performing together on stage at a gathering in Canada for Philadelphia academics, business executives, and artists, the two had a brief meeting. 

Shapiro informed Trudeau that, in keeping with Canada’s excellent lead, he wants Pennsylvania to be the US leader in renewable energy. He reiterated a favourite quote of Trudeau’s about how diversity fortifies our bonds. 

Both leaders emphasised the need to defend democracy and freedom against growing disinformation campaigns, institutional assaults, and public mistrust of their government.

At the SEIU convention, Trudeau addressed a large number of union members, outlining his government’s support for unions. He also discussed the significance of the positive relationship between the United States and Canada.

Canada and the United States are there for each other during this challenging moment for the world,” stated Prime Minister Trudeau. It’s critical to keep in mind how unique our cooperation is now. America’s next presidential election holds great significance for the nation.
