Le Journal de Montréal quotes Montréal lawyer Raymond Chrétien in an article on the meeting between Justin Trudeau and Donald Trump in Washington.
The former Canadian ambassador to Washington Raymond Chrétien maintains that the first few minutes will be “crucial”.
Mr. Trudeau’s “main objective” will then be to “establish a good atmosphere” between his team and that of President Trump.
“The two men will size each other up and study one another, states the Fasken Martineau partner and strategic advisor. If a good personal relationship is established, everything will be much easier in the coming months and years.”
