Prime minister pitches Canada as tech-friendly

Trudeau

The message to American audiences will simply be, "Canada is still open for trade even without NAFTA", Brock said.

In the audience was a group of Midwest students and officials, some of whom are skeptical that trade would help them.

Jerry Brown. The motorcade had just left the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley in Ventura County, where Trudeau had presented a speech on the benefits of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

During his interview with Trudeau, Axelrod asked how the leader dealt with the tension between combating climate change and okaying the construction of new pipelines. "It's one of those things we know contributes to growth, but trade on its own doesn't ensure everyone benefits".

California sells some $25.4 billion in goods and services to Canada, and nearly 1.2 million jobs in the state rely on trade, according to federal statistics.

"I know our journalistic friends sometimes cast our administrations as unlikely to see eye-to-eye on anything", Trudeau said. "A good teacher-and I think this applies to politics-isn't someone who has all the answers".

Nova Scotia premier adds voice to concerns over pipeline trade dispute
Protesters said in an email that they "physically intervened" and forced construction to a halt on the Trans Mountain pipeline. He added: "We're now on a path to getting approvals, but it's not lost on us that there are still obstacles".

Trudeau left the stage to a standing ovation from the auditorium nearly filled to its capacity of about 1,000, wading through the crowd of students and shaking the occasional hand as The Tragically Hip's "Courage" played over the loudspeakers.

Jeff Bezos is next on the schedule.

Last week, Trudeau commented that "Canada is willing to walk away from the NAFTA if the United States proposes a bad deal". This investment will expand Salesforce's client relationship management services and lead to the creation of thousands of good, middle class jobs.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wrapped up his trip to the United States Saturday with a stop in Los Angeles, where he and Mayor Eric Garcetti spoke with reporters at Griffith Observatory and went for a morning hike at Griffith Park. Salesforce now employs 1,300 people in Canada. Axelrod said numerous students at the institute he founded identify with Trudeau and his brand of politics. Meanwhile, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Trudeau announced a revised Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a new trade deal between Canada and 10 other countries, after Trump withdrew from the original TPP a year ago.

That kind of talk will get more attention from the anti-trade crowd, Maisch said. And Trudeau had a few local heavy hitters set to sit down with him, with Salesforce Chief Executive Marc Benioff, eBay CEO Devin Wenig, AppDirect co-CEO Daniel Saks and Amgen CEO Robert Bradway scheduled to have talks with the Canadian prime minister.

Trudeau's motorcade was being escorted by the California Highway Patrol Dignitary Protection Section at 7.30pm after leaving the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute.
