BURNABY, B.C. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau demonstrated a new virtual camera used by game makers at an Electronic Arts Canada studio near Vancouver on Thursday after promoting the country’s technology sector to officials in Washington state.

REDMOND, Wash. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Washington state Wednesday to promote Canada’s growing technology industry to major multinational companies, joining top business leaders inside the closed-door Microsoft CEO Summit.
Trudeau’s visit comes as U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration poses both challenges and opportunities for Canada’s high-tech industry. Trump’s “America First” rhetoric and his plans to slash corporate taxes could mean more investment flows south of the border, but his restrictive approach to immigration could draw talent north, experts said.

WASHINGTON – Step aside, China and Mexico: Canada is now U.S. President Donald Trump’s whipping-boy-du-jour on trade, something he made abundantly clear Tuesday with a tweet, a tax, a threat, a scolding and a familiar faux-compliment he used to lavish on others.
A preferred Trump tactic is to compliment sly foreigners for outfoxing his supposedly dim-witted presidential predecessors in trade deals. In the 1990s, he said it about Japan. More recently, it was China and Mexico.
WINNIPEG — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will land in Winnipeg later this week for a town hall as part of his cross-Canada tour.
Trudeau will speak at the University of Winnipeg’s Duckworth Centre at 3:30 p.m. The original plan was for Trudeau to attend the Caboto Centre on Wilkes Avenue, but an overwhelming demand for tickets required a larger venue.
His grassroots tour is to allow Trudeau the opportunity to “remain connected with Canadians and engage with them across the country, at home in their communities.”
