Today it was wonderful to be back among Canadians at the UK Canada Chamber of commerce event fundraising for the the Canada-UK Foundation. We were lucky to hear from the High Commissioner Ralph Goodale who is clearly focused on raising awareness of Canada and our bi-lateral trade, a great event all round.
It happily coincided with another important Anglo Canadian event taking place to round out my day of Canadian engagement at the Canada-UK Colloquium. Established in 1971, the Colloquium brings together policy-makers, industry leaders, politicians, academics and emerging scholars for a practical discussion on key policy challenges for both countries. Tonight we celebrated its 50th anniversary in London, joined by Bob Rae Canadian Ambassador to the UN amongst many distinguished guests #canada #london #UK
