Justin Trudeau Delivers Love Letter to the EU Plus a Free Trade Warning on CETA

Justin Trudeau has delivered a paean to the ideals of European integration and global free trade, while warning in the same speech that the new Canada-EU trade deal (CETA) could be among the last signed. Addressing a packed European parliament chamber Thursday, whilst Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) scrambled to take shots of the Canadian premier on their smartphones, Trudeau said the newly-signed CETA trade agreement was a demonstration of Canada and the EU’s respect for one another.
