Describing Canada as a ”work in progress,” Trudeau said improving the daily of life of Indigenous people will mean recrafting of the relationship in order to make it more a respectful partnership.
Tying those challenges with climate change, the prime minister received widespread applause for saying no country could walk away from the responsibility to address it for future generations.
Without touching on the ongoing North American Free Trade renegotiations, Trudeau said Ottawa was working hard to deliver deals such as the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement with the European Union, which came into effect today.
