Link: What to expect from the Biden-Trudeau meeting

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was the first world leader to congratulate President Biden by phone after he was declared winner of the election and was Biden’s first call with a world leader after his inauguration.

On Tuesday, Trudeau will meet with Biden — albeit via videoconference — in what Ottawa hopes will produce a reset in relations with Canada’s largest trading partner and one of its closest allies after four tumultuous years with President Donald Trump.

There are points of friction and points of agreement. Trudeau has a hard time reconciling his Alberta tar sands stance with his climate change stance.
