One of the fathers said, My daughter's wish was to go to Disney World, but even if we don't get there, it's okay. We've had such a good time here, she's not sad.
The people of Gander were just phenomenal. I can't say enough nice things about them. They brought smoking patches to the airplane. They brought diapers of every size. They brought baby formula. They filled 2,000 prescriptions in the middle of the night.
The United States has not yet still made a formal notification to Congress about the issues and also about the timing with respect to the renegotiation of NAFTA. But what is important to acknowledge is that, as Prime Minister Trudeau said, we are prepared to sit down at the table. NAFTA is an agreement that was negotiated about two decades ago and has been amended already about 12 times.
I was reminded of this – my friend Chris Murray who was also in the fifth grade – we actually beat up Justin Trudeau. I'm not bragging about this, this is terrible. I was a stupid kid.
I think it was rather instrumental in him … going to such great heights and becoming the prime minister. I think he said, I'm gonna rise above this and I'm gonna become prime minister.
I was reminded this, my friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau. We both beat him up. I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren't so it was pure jealousy. I think he was the only kid in school that we could beat up.
There is no relationship quite like the friendship between Canada and the United States. The deep ties ... of business, of friends, of culture, of people traveling back and forth, families of all these connections. This story, this amazing show is very much about that. And it's about friendship as well.
I can't sing and dance, so her role is safe from me.
But I guess she can't fly jets.
When do we have the opportunity to share a story about kindness, gratitude and love that takes place in a country that is known for opening their hearts to people? It just meant the world to all of us.
I have to sort of personally say, on behalf of all Canadians, thank you for making us so welcome with the snow. It's a nice touch. You really went out of your way.
Our friends are there for those tough times, when you lose a parent or a loved one, when you get knocked off your path at a difficult moment in your life. Where you go through difficult times, that's when you turn and you lean on your friends. That ultimately is what this story is all about – being there for each other.
It was a bit cute and maybe awkward as well, but it worked. He clearly looked at the way of campaigning of Obama and Justin Trudeau in Canada and tried to imitate with the meetups they organized, and with big events combining politics with rappers and music and poets. I think that's really modern and good, to make politics popular.

We've got auto parts criss-crossing the border six times before they end up in a finished product. You've got over $2 billion a day going back and forth. So, making sure that the border is … secure but also smooth in its flow of goods and people is essential to good jobs on both sides of the border.
NAFTA's been ... improved a dozen times over the past 20 years. There's always opportunities to talk about how we can make it better. It has led to a lot of great jobs for a whole lot of people on both sides of the border and I very much take him at his word when he talks about just making a few tweaks. Because that's what we're always happy to do.
I know and I've always felt for Canada that we recognize that diversity is a great source of strength. I think Canadians have always been interested in the choices Americans make because the choices you make inevitably impact upon us … and how we make sure that we get that balance right between continuing to have a good relationship and standing for the things we believe in is what we expect of ourselves.
The world gets to see what it is to lean on each other and be there for each other through the darkest times. There is no relationship quite like the friendship between Canada and the United States … this story, this amazing show, is very much about that, and it's about friendship as well.

[The cast] worked to pull together such an extraordinary crowd to celebrate this story of friendship during extraordinarily difficult times between individuals between countries.
I guess she can't fly jets.
When do we have the opportunity to share a story about kindness, gratitude and love that takes place in a country that is known for opening their hearts to people. It just meant the world to all of us.
You always imagine as a kid you want to do 'Annie'. But to be here as a Newfoundlander, doing a show about Newfoundland, is beyond anything I could ever have imagined.
We love to see ourselves on the world stage, because it's not often.
We're always going to have differences of approaches on certain issues, but the fundamental hopes for the future, the responsibilities of keeping people safe, and building a better future for our kids is something that we can always agree on. I know – and I've always felt, for Canada – that we recognize that diversity is a great source of strength, and that's something we're open to in the world.
Every night when we go sign autographs there are school groups from Alberta or somewhere else in Canada. This is a very Canada-proud story, and people are excited to celebrate that.
The contrast between the U.S. and Canada is so stark. Nothing is solved unless we have dialogue.
We both beat him up. I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren't, so it was pure jealousy. But I don't think that's the reason we beat him up. I think he was the only kid in school that we could beat up. But I think I was rather instrumental in him going to such great heights and becoming the prime minister. I think he said, you know, I'm going to rise above this and I'm going to become prime minister.

I think we are still a tolerant country. We are a country who believes in freedom and we are an emphatic society I would say. Geert Wilders is losing momentum. You know he was very high in the polls and now he is going down and down and down. And that's where he should be.
And a lot of people who are voting for Geert Wilders are not racist, they are very tolerant. Except they are only afraid for what is happening in their lives. They are afraid for their future.
This year is not only about the election in the Netherlands, but elections in the whole of Europe. In the Netherlands, we have to show that populism can be stopped and there is an alternative. That alternative is us. The values the Netherlands stands for, for many, many decades, centuries actually, its freedom, its tolerance, its empathy. ..they are destroying it. It's terrible when people are born in the Netherlands have the feeling they are not part of this society and it is not something to be proud of, but something to be ashamed of. And I want to change that.
Women's rights are everybody's rights. We know that society is better – more prosperous, more stable, more peaceful, more cohesive – when women's rights are respected, and when women are valued, empowered, and lead the way in our communities. That's why men have to be involved in fighting for women's rights … It can't just be women – if men don't speak up, it'll be much more difficult to make the fundamental changes we need. I'm proud to be a feminist, because making sure that everyone understands we all have a role in fighting for equality is the only way to move forward.
But I think my biggest advice is to reach out and look for allies – whether it's women with whom you work, share experiences with and learn from, or the men adding their voices to the fight for equality. On days like today, we push loudly and directly for equality, more opportunity and more fairness.
Having 30 different people around the table with tremendously different backgrounds actually allows for a much better quality of decision making, because you're working with a group of people who share a similar set of values, but very different perspectives. You get more diversity and creativity in your problem solving, and you end up having a much better and more representative approach to solving the challenges faced by the population you serve. I'll be careful here because when it comes to gender equality, I often say men should do less talking and more listening!
Our goal is gender equality, and fighting for it is going to require men and women working together – raising our boys and girls to make a difference, hand-in-hand. This is about recognizing that we should be allies on this journey.
This week, as we mark International Women's Day, let's celebrate the boys and men in our lives who encourage us to be who we truly are, who treat girls & women with respect, and who aren't afraid to speak up in front of others. Together, we can create a movement that inspires more men to join the fight to build a better tomorrow with equal rights & opportunities for everyone … because #EqualityMatters.

There's always opportunities to improve trade deals. NAFTA has been improved a dozen times over the past 20 years.
We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada. We'll be tweaking it. We'll be doing certain things that are going to benefit both of our countries. It's a much less severe situation than what's taken place on the southern border.
You routinely see Prime Minister Justin Trudeau show up in the same room where all the founders show up.
With the help of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, we have formed a council with our neighbours in Canada to help ensure that women entrepreneurs have access to the networks, markets and capital they need to start a business and live out their financial dreams. I believe that real and positive immigration reform is possible, as long as we focus on the following goals – to improve jobs and wages for Americans, to strengthen our nation's security, and to restore respect for our laws.
What will the government do to secure clear assurances for Canadians who wish to cross the border? When will the Prime Minister stand up for Canadians … will he stand up to the bully?
Canadian laws are in place, so there is extra protection when Canadians go through American customs in Canada.
What will the government do to secure clear assurances for Canadians who wish to cross the border? When will the Prime Minister stand up for Canadians ... will he stand up to the bully?
Whether you're a business or a government, it's time to realize that this anger and anxiety we see washing over the world is coming from a very real place. And it's not going away. It's time to get real about the challenges facing the middle class, and those working hard to join it. Whether your goal is to build a successful company, or lead a respected and effective government, it's time to realize that the old approaches don't work anymore. We have to address the root cause of their worries, and get real about how the changing economy is impacting peoples' lives.
When companies post record profits on the backs of workers consistently refused full-time work - and the job security that comes with it - people get defeated. And when governments serve special interests instead of the citizens interests who elected them – people lose faith. You must be part of the communities where you operate, realizing that these towns and cities support you, and you must, in turn, support them.
The European Union is a truly remarkable achievement, and an unprecedented model for peaceful co-operation. Canada knows that an effective European voice on the global stage isn't just preferable – it's essential. Now, we live in a time when many people are worried that the current system only benefits society's luckiest few. And their concern is valid. This anxiety towards the economy and trade – the worry that our kids won't have access to the same jobs and opportunities that we had – can be addressed only if we ensure that trade is inclusive, so that everyone benefits.
The European Union is a truly remarkable achievement, and an unprecedented model for peaceful co-operation. Canada knows that an effective European voice on the global stage isn't just preferable -- it's essential. If we are successful, CETA will become the blueprint for all ambitious, future trade deals. If we are not, this could well be one of the last. Now, we live in a time when many people are worried that the current system only benefits society's luckiest few. And their concern is valid.

"You are a vital player in addressing the challenges that we collectively face as an international community,". "Indeed the whole world benefits from a strong EU,". "We know that, in these times, we must choose to lead the international economy, not simply be subject to its whims,". "If we are successful, CETA will become the blueprint for all ambitious, future trade deals. If we are not, this could very well be the last. So make no mistake, this is an important moment for us".

This year, something has happened that I've never seen before. A number of employers say they want to go ahead [to help the employee stay in the U.S.] but the person doesn't want to stay here. They don't want to commit to an H-1B visa; and they're not people from the Middle East either.
I do think the points system works, and it's not going to be 100 percent foolproof. You have to make sure that new immigrants succeed. If they have the skills, language to get by in the country then their chances of succeeding increases and everybody wins.
I'm against the points system. To change our system that way would not address our needs. We are STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) hungry and if we create this anti-immigrant atmosphere we're going to lose these people.
Canada and the United States have been neighbours a long time. But there have been times where we have differed in our approaches. And that's always been done firmly and respectfully. The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country on how they choose to govern themselves.
America is deeply fortunate to have a neighbour like Canada. We have before us the opportunity to build even more bridges and bridges of co-operation and bridges of commerce. Both of us are committed to bringing greater prosperity and opportunity to our people. On the southern (border), for many, many years, the transaction was not fair to the United States... our relationship with Canada is outstanding. And we're going to work together to make it even better. (Justin's) father I knew, and respected greatly.
Canada has always understood that keeping Canadians safe is one of the fundamental responsibilities of any government. At the same time, we continue to pursue our policies of openness towards refugees without compromising security. There have been times where we have differed in our approaches and that's always been done firmly and respectfully. The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country on how they choose to govern themselves. Today's conversations have served to reinforce how important that is for both Canadians and Americans.
"There have been times where we have differed in our approaches and that's always been done firmly and respectfully. The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country on how they choose to govern themselves,". "Goods and services do cross the border each day...we have to allow this free flow of goods and services and we have to be aware of the integration of our economies".
"We have a very outstanding trade relationship with Canada. We'll be tweaking it,". "It's a much less severe situation than what's taking place on the southern border. On the southern border, for many, many years the transaction was not fair to the United States.". "We must work to address the barriers faced by women and women entrepreneurs, including access to capital, access to markets and very importantly access to networks,".

No other neighbors in the world are as fundamentally linked as we are.
Our economy is very dependent on our relationship with the United States. But there are also good jobs, millions of jobs, in the United States that depend on the relationships between our two countries.
You don't have to be a genius to see there are some stark differences between them. But is this the time to be poking people in the eye? I would say it is not. ... In some ways the president is a guy for whom personal relationships may be even more important.
In order to create economic growth and lots of very good, well-paying jobs, we must ensure that our economy is a place where women can work and thrive, and I think that's happening in the United States much more so.
We have welcomed refugees from Syria we have been very successful and we take our responsibility of security very seriously.
We don't want our country to have the kind of problems you see taking place not only here but the rest of the world. American and Canadian troops have gone to battle together, fought wars together and forged the special bonds that come when two nations have shed their blood together – which we have.

America "is deeply fortunate to have a neighbor like Canada. The full power of women can do better than anybody else. The "system is not working so well for entrepreneurs.
"The overriding priority will be for Canada to maintain secure and reliable access to the U.S. market and the supply chains that crisscross the border,"
It's a smart thing if Canada proposed this. It takes attention off of NAFTA. And from Trump's point of view, it contributes to softening Trump's image, and he's got a problem with women.
The overriding priority will be for Canada to maintain secure and reliable access to the U.S. market and the supply chains that crisscross the border.
This is about making sure our public dollars go farther and are used smarter.
So in some sense Canada approaches the renegotiation from a good position.
Something sudden will happen with Trump and Canadians will look to Mr Trudeau immediately and say: what are you going to do about it? And that day will come.
He's been playing it pretty well by restraining the temptation to be publicly critical of the president. At the same time, it's a delicate balance.
Changing the electoral system will not be in your mandate. A clear preference for a new electoral system, let alone a consensus, has not emerged. Furthermore, without a clear preference or a clear question, a referendum would not be in Canada's interest. This should include asking the Communications Security Establishment (CSE) to analyze risks to Canada's political and electoral activities from hackers, and to release this assessment publicly.

We need to keep New Brunswickers safe. Getting them their power or ensuring they are at one of the many warming centres is a priority.
Make no mistake, this was a terrorist attack. Know that we value you. You enrich our shared country in immeasurable ways. It is your home. Last night's horrible crime against the Muslim community was an act of terror committed against Canada and against all Canadians.
Last night's shooting, targeting people of faith during their worship and prayer, is a deplorable attack on all Canadians and our most deeply-held values.
The Muslim community was the target of this murderous attack. No person should have to pay with their life, for their race, their colour, their sexual orientation or their religious beliefs.
Prime Minister Trudeau was extremely appreciative and he was also cautious to draw conclusions on the motives at this stage of the investigation and the president shared those thoughts. We condemn this attack in the strongest possible terms. It's a terrible reminder of why we must remain vigilant and why the president is taking steps to be pro-active, rather than reactive when it comes to our nation's safety and security.
We are sad for the families. Why is this happening here? This is barbaric. They tell us that this is an isolated incident, but what message does that send to the Québécoise and Canadian Muslim community? We were sent a pig's head. We were told that was an isolated incident, but today we have deaths.
No person should have to pay with their life, for their race, their color, their sexual orientation or their religious beliefs.
I would like to say a few words, to our Quebec compatriots of Muslim faith: we are with you, you are at home, you are welcomed at home, we are all from Quebec. Together we must to continue to build an open, welcoming and peaceful society.
Six people are confirmed dead -- they range in age from 35 to about 70.
Why is this happening here? This is barbaric. Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country.
Was he badly hurt?
The Muslim community was the target of this murderous attack.
NYPD is providing additional protection for mosques in the city. All New Yorkers should be vigilant. If you see something, say something. Our prayers are with the people of Quebec City as they deal with a terrible attack on a mosque. We must stand together. To my fellow New Yorkers who are Muslim: New York City will protect you. The NYPD will protect you. We will fight all hatred and bias.
We condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a centre of worship and refuge. It is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence. Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country. Canadian law enforcement agencies will protect the rights of all Canadians and will make every effort to apprehend the perpetrators of this act and all acts of intolerance. To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength #WelcomeToCanada.
Canadians will stand united, with you & against such hatred.
I don't know what to say, I just hope that his family and his children can have the patience to accept what happened.
No person should have to pay with their life, for their race, their colour, their sexual orientation or their religious beliefs.
Prime Minister (Justin) Trudeau has to play his cards pretty carefully here. The last thing you want is have some sort of taxation on oil going into the U.S.
Millions of good middle class jobs on either side of the border depend on the close trade relationship that we have and that has really been at the centre of all of our discussions. We had a great bilateral visit to Japan last year, in which we started early conversations on Canada-Japan trade improvements that can be made and we've also launched exploratory talks on free trade with China. We know that increasing our engagement with the growing economies of Asia is an important way to ensure good jobs and prosperity for Canada and that is what we are going to continue to do.
In both the conversations I've had with President Trump now, Keystone XL came up as a topic and I reiterated my support for the project. I've been on the record for many years supporting it because it mean's economic growth and good jobs for Albertans.
There's a whole change in the body politic all around the world. You saw it in Britain, you saw it in Canada, it certainly happened in the states. People are no longer happy with politicians. They want people that have executional track records.
All [Trudeau's] policies on corporate tax, carbon tax, tax this, tax that, are completely out of sync with the U.S.. He should have used the Trump election to basically pivot. He didn't do that.
This is going to be 'Shark Tank' versus 'The Apprentice' Smackdown, coming to you in 2020.
They haven't said anything specific about any real problems that they have with us.
It's official, I'm in. The Conservative Party of Canada needs a candidate who can beat (Prime Minister) Justin Trudeau and bring back jobs to this country!
There are millions of Canadian jobs that depend on the U.S. market, but there are also millions of American jobs that depend on smooth integration and flow back and forth across the border of goods and services.
We are very confident ... we are going to be able to find common ground to ensure that both of our economies prosper in the coming years.
The travel back and forth from (the Bahamian capital) Nassau to the island happens on the Aga Khan's private helicopter, which he offered us the use of ... we don't see an issue on that.
This tour will provide many great opportunities to engage directly with Canadians, and will now be taking place over a longer period than previously planned.
The Canada-China relationship will be well served by such a strong presence from our government.
As you may know, the Prime Minister will soon be embarking upon a town hall tour across different regions of our country in order to meet with and remain connected to Canadians, at home and in their communities. This tour will provide many great opportunities to engage directly with Canadians, and will now be taking place over a longer period than previously planned.
The forum is a prime opportunity to highlight Canada's strength as a place to invest, grow, and establish new business opportunities – and our ministers will be doing that work and building new relationships.
There is no relationship in the entire world quite like the Canada-U.S. relationship. We've built an economic relationship that supports jobs in every congressional district. We're the largest international customer for goods and services made in the U.S.A.
He actually brought up Keystone XL and indicated that he was very supportive of it. I will work with the new administration when it gets sworn in ... I'm confident that the right decisions will be taken.
Until we change the laws, the laws stand.
We are only the second nation to move forward in this way.
Let's not be naive as Canadians. This is our No.1, not just trading partner, but competitor ... we need to be competitive with them.
(This) will both protect our economy and protect the environment at the same time.
There are periods when the number of genuine leaders are on a continent are in short supply and when they are in heavy supply. We're going to get through this period because we are Americans and Canadians.
The world is going to spend a lot of time looking to you Mr. Prime Minister. Viva la Canada because we need you very, very badly.
The Great Bear Rainforest is no place for a pipeline, and the Douglas Channel is no place for oil tanker traffic.
You will see the movement continue to escalate in the streets as the number of protests and actions continue to grow, in the courts, and at the ballot box here in (British Columbia) and beyond.
The project will triple our capacity to get Canadian energy resources to international markets beyond the United States. We took this decision today because we believe it is in the best interests of Canada.
Our duty is to permit infrastructure so Canada's resources get to market in a more environmentally responsible way, creating jobs and a thriving economy. We know that this decision is the right one for Canadians.
Today we are finally seeing some morning light. We are getting a chance to break our landlock. We're getting a chance to sell to China and other new markets at better prices. We're getting a chance to reduce our dependence on one market, and therefore to be more economically independent.... of equal importance, we are building the economy within a strong new national environmental policy.
The fact is Fidel Castro had a deep and lasting impact on the Cuban people. He certainly was a polarizing figure and there certainly were concerns around human rights. That's something that I'm open about and that I've highlighted. But on the passing of his death I expressed a statement that highlighted the deep connection between the people of Canada and the people of Cuba.
A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and health care of his island nation. While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro's supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for 'el Comandante.
Is this a real statement or a parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful (and) embarrassing.
Taking traditional coal power out of our energy mix and replacing it with cleaner technologies will significantly reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, improve the health of Canadians, and benefit generations for years to come.
Mallinckrodt CEO Mark Trudeau has been caught red handed committing securities fraud – exposed by none other than the newly released Medicare drug-spending dashboard.
I would note we understand this legislation has several more steps to go before it's passed. We hope it does not become law.
I'm not worried about competing, what I'm worried about is highlighting and putting forward the best possible understanding for people of just the ease of doing business in Canada, the long-term growth potential here in Canada, the extraordinarily positive and educated workforce.
We share a purpose, our two countries. ... I'm going to work with (his) administration as we move forward in a positive way.
We're prepared to talk. … I think anything can be improved, and we're open to having discussions.
He needs to be thinking about mobilizing allies at all levels of the U.S. political system.
Mission accomplished! Just agreed with (Canadian) Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to hold EU-Canada Summit this Sunday.
I am glad for good news from PM Charles Michel. Only once all procedures are finalised for EU signing CETA, will I contact PM Justin Trudeau.
If we get less support, it might be acceptable to make a small change.
There are lots of things to discuss with our Canadian friends but if we don't manage to have this trade agreement there will not be (a visit by Trudeau) at this occasion.
He was highly respected and well liked in the House of Commons across all party lines because he brought an intelligent, honest and straightforward approach to everything he did. I greatly enjoyed my interactions with Jim, time I spent working beside him, across from him in the House – and while we didn't always share the same views, he was always incredibly kind and respectful to me.
On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to his family and friends and to the loved ones of all those who perished in this tragic accident.
Today, we mourn the passing of a great Canadian.
He worked tirelessly for all of us, in the true spirit of one who is committed to public service. I benefited from his advice, and the Government of Alberta is continuing to pursue many of his initiatives. All Albertans are the better for this.
In a post-Brexit environment where there are many questions about the usefulness of Europe, if Europe does not find a way to sign this deal, it will be a clear message not just to Europeans but to the world that Europe is engaged in a path that is not useful for its citizens and the world. It would be really disappointing.
If in a week or two we see that Europe is unable to sign a progressive trade agreement with a country like Canada, well, then with whom will Europe think that it can do business in the years to come?

In those negotiations, we will work to meet the mandate agreed to by President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau when they met in Ottawa in June - a new agreement that is designed to maintain Canadian exports at or below an agreed-upon U.S. market share to be negotiated, with the stability, consistency and flexibility necessary to achieve the confidence of both industries.
I think the important messages is one of stability and responsible action that will ensure that Canadians can continue to have confidence in their investments in their homes.
It's something that we are never finished doing, we continue to work very closely with all partners to ensure that Canadians have confidence in their homes and in the future.
This is a really great day ... after 10 years of inaction, of not taking serious steps to tackle climate change, we're finally doing it.
Provinces and territories that choose cap-and-trade systems will need to decrease emissions in line to both Canada's target and to the reductions expected in jurisdictions that choose a price-based system.
We're not going to shun science and we're not going to put off the inevitable.
The price will be set at a level that will assist Canada in achieving its goal for greenhouse gas emissions reductions, while allowing companies better stability and predictability.
Provinces and territories will have a choice in how they implement this pricing. They can put a direct price on carbon pollution, or they can adopt a cap-and-trade system, with the expectation that it be stringent enough to meet or exceed the federal benchmark.
We've not been officially contacted by the Philippine defense department authorities regarding President Duterte's statement.
I'd also note that we'll live up to our commitments and we'll expect them to live up to theirs.
There is no hiding from climate change. It is real and it is everywhere. We cannot undo the last 10 years of inaction. What we can do is make a real and honest effort - today and every day - to protect the health of our environment, and with it, the health of all Canadians.
Eighty five percent of the Canadian economy is located in provinces where there is pricing on carbon pollution in one shape or another. We are going to bring that up to 100 percent.
With regard to the federal government's proposals today, Alberta will not be supporting this proposal absent serious concurrent progress on energy infrastructure, to ensure we have the economic means to fund these policies. It is time for the Government of Canada to act on this issue.
Our progress on this file goes to show how two countries willing to collaborate can solve difficult challenges together.
And, it will be very important that any future agreement be based on reflecting the realities, the principles, the values that our citizens hold dear in each of our countries.
We have the knowledge and tools to end HIV, TB and malaria as epidemics by 2030, but we need to invest smartly and with focus to make it happen.
The science seems to be on Canada's side but as the seller, Canada will have to adjust and change some of its facilities for separating canola from other materials. Trudeau is going to play for time and postpone this matter for at least a year or two.
It's important ... the Chinese understand this is not some side issue. This is a priority issue for Canada. When the Liberal government came to power last year, Trudeau instructed her to expand trade with China. We cannot take the next step in our relationship with China until the canola issue is resolved. ... We expect some action from China. Our canola is absolutely safe.
On behalf of Canadians, I thank Gord Downie and the Hip for their decades of service to Canadian music. Forever in our hearts and playlists.
We will talk about this show in hushed tones for years to come. #TragicallyHip.
Thank you, people, for keeping me pushing and keeping me pushing.
There is a Canadianness that runs through them to the point where new citizens should be given a Tragically Hip CD after they take the oath.
This sort of conspiracy theory, inflammatory rhetoric ... is absolutely not helpful. We have certainly spoken to our Turkish counterparts on unhelpful rhetoric.
Today, terrorists targeted a hospital, as well as the judiciary and the media, two of the most important pillars of every democracy. These brutal and senseless attacks only deepen our shared resolve to defeat terrorism around the world.
Mallinckrodt's strong performance in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 reflects an ongoing focus on execution in specialty brands- particularly in our commercial and scientific organizations.
It is unacceptable given the conditions in Juba to prevent civilians from freely departing the country.
We continue to press the leaders of South Sudan to end the fighting. We call on all parties to allow civilian freedom of movement and provide unfettered humanitarian access to all people in need. Destruction and damage to humanitarian facilities and violence against aid workers is unacceptable and must stop immediately.
At a time when we all too often are hearing rhetoric that ignores the enormous contributions that have been made by Mexicans-Americans and the enormous strengths that we draw from in the relationship with our good neighbor's to the south, it's been useful for us to reaffirm all the issues we've been working on together.
We must acknowledge that isolationism cannot bring prosperity to a society. It is from a collective effort between the countries that are located in one same region.
Better collaboration, better partnerships are a path to prosperity. And that's a compelling example that we want to showcase at a time where, unfortunately, people are prone to turning inwards which will unfortunately be at the cost of economic growth and their own success.
We can't rule out such harassment that could occur elsewhere. I just don't have specifics on other countries.
He has raised it with President Putin. We see an increase and we take it seriously.
I would also like to thank my family for the effort they put in – my family and friends for the effort they put in – to get me out of here. I know you did everything you can, and I truly appreciate it. I'm sorry I got you in this mess.
We live like this every day, go to bed like this. We have a hundred people heavily armed around us all the time that dictate to us and talk to us like children. We've been humiliated in every way possible. One of us has already been murdered.
We strongly condemn the brutal and senseless murder of Mr. Robert Hall, a Canadian national, after being held captive by the Abu Sayyaf group in Sulu for the past nine months.
Terrorist hostage-takings only fuel more violence and instability. Canada will not give into their fear mongering tactics and despicable attitude toward the suffering of others.
As for the South China Sea, we share serious concerns over unilateral actions that raise tensions, such as large-scale reclamation, the building of facilities and militarization. It is a significant achievement that we have agreed to cooperate to secure rule-based, free, safe seas.
As part of our delegation, Canada's trade minister is here. She will be meeting with Japanese companies and is expected to make a number of announcements as part of her visit.
Both (oil companies) Syncrude and Suncor have emergency plans in place, which they are operationalising, and firefighters in place as well. Officials are confident that should additional trigger lines be crossed that people can be evacuated safely if necessary.
We agreed that it is something that we are going to make sure that we do bring up with our friends and allies around the world as we come to grips with the fact that the world is a dangerous place. We need to make sure that terrorists understand that they cannot continue to fund their crimes and their violence from taking innocents hostage.
The responsibility rests squarely with the terrorist group who took him hostage.
Canada condemns without reservation the brutality of the hostage takers and this unnecessary death.
He seems like a pretty cool guy.
It was great to train him. He is very likable and he has the potential to impact people in his country and around the world very positively. And he's got a heavy punch!
This issue of softwood lumber will get resolved in some fashion ... undoubtedly to the dissatisfaction of all parties concerned. Each side will want 100 percent, and we'll find a way for each side to get 60 percent or so of what they need, and people will complain and grumble, but it will be fine.
We'd sometimes like to think that Americans would pay attention to us from time to time.
Because you can't be Canadian without being aware of at least one other country, the United States, because it's so important to us. I think we sometimes like to think that, you know, Americans will pay attention to us from time to time, too.
Obama was delighted that Trudeau got elected. They're both liberals. They both like to talk the same kind of language.
It's going to be a wonderful time of strengthening ties between our two countries both on the economic, on the security, on the engagement with the world and on the personal level.
I think we've seen the incredible excitement that Justin generated during his campaign in Canada. We're confident that he's going to be able to provide a great boost of energy and reform to the Canadian political landscape. And we're looking forward very much to working with him.
It's going to be important…to be able to have a positive relationship with whoever Americans choose as their president. I don't think it comes as a surprise to anyone that I stand firmly against the politics of division, the politics of fear, the politics of intolerance or hateful rhetoric. If we allow politicians to succeed by scaring people, we don't actually end up any safer. Fear doesn't make us safer. It makes us weaker.
On behalf of all Canadians, we offer our deepest condolences to the families, friends and colelagues of all those killed and a speedy recovery to all those injured, we are deeply saddended by these senseless acts of violence on innocent civilians. We have offered assistance to the Burkinabe authorities in their investigation of this terrible crime.
I will be engaging with the premiers in the coming weeks to establish a strong position for Canada, so that people know that Canada's years of being a less than enthusiastic actor on the climate change file are behind us.
ISIL would like us to see them as a credible threat to our way of life and to our civilization. We know Canada is stronger, much stronger than the threat posed by a murderous gang of thugs who are terrorising some of the more vulnerable people on earth.
