Le Devoir quotes Montreal lawyer Raymond Chrétien in an article on the American elections.
Former Canadian ambassador to Washington from 1994 to 2000, Raymond Chrétien noted that Joe Biden's ties to Canada will prompt him to pay attention to his Northern neighbour. He notes, “He's a man who knows Canada well. He came here with his first wife whose family was from Toronto. He came to Canada often; his running mate grew up in Montreal.”
