OTTAWAPrime Minister Justin Trudeau is taking a pass on a meeting this week with U.S. President Donald Trump and Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
Trudeaus office says he wishes the two countries and their leaders well but Trudeau will remain in Ottawa for a cabinet retreat and a scheduled sitting of Parliament.
Lopez Obrador is travelling to D.C. in part to celebrate the entry-into-force of the new North American free-trade deal and had expressed hope Trudeau would join as well.
Trudeaus office says the prime minister will continue to work with both countries to ensure the agreement becomes a success and helps ensure North America emerges stronger from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Trudeau had been asked last week whether hed attend the meeting, and had not mentioned either Parliament or the retreat as reasons not to go.

“I cannot believe Canada re-elected this moron”
Me neither. In a just world, the media would have been fair to Stephen Harper and we could have watched him team up with President Trump to actually get some things done in North America. It would have been amazing.
In reality, the media were just as bad to Harper as they are to Trump, though being Canadian, they were more polite about it to his face, while stabbing him the back at the same time.
Americans are just open about it. “Hey, Trump, wanna piece of this? I gotcher question right here!” LOL!
