St. Lawrence County’s Congresswoman, Elise Stefanik, today (Nov. 17) met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Washington DC and discussed Northern Border travel, North American energy security, and strengthening U.S.-Canadian supply chains to combat reliance on China. ‘I am proud to welcome Prime Minister Trudeau today alongside my bipartisan colleagues. Canada is not only America’s closest ally and neighbor, it is an essential partner to New York’s North Country,’ Stefanik said. ‘I appreciate Canada’s partnership in reopening the Northern Border and have urged bilateral coordination and continued progress towards fully restoring cross-border travel. I remain committed to strengthening the longstanding relationship between the United States and Canada to ensure a smooth reopening of the Northern Border, maintain North American energy security, and strengthen the supply chains between our two countries on behalf my constituents in the North Country.’ In the meeting, Stefanik recognized Canada’s recent leadership on cross border travel and encouraged Prime Minister Trudeau to drop Canada’s COVID-19 test requirement that continues to burden cross-border travel.
