Colin Robertson, former diplomat and strategic advisor at Mckenna, Long, Aldridge LLP says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not just a leader, but seen as somewhat of a celebrity, and we can play that celebrity status to our advantage.
Will Dubreuil, director of public affairs at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, says Trudeau's visit to the U.S. is a huge honour and signifies a new era in Canada-U.S. relations.
Nik Nanos, chair of Nanos Research, says if the opposition wants to bring down Prime Minister Justin Trudeau it's not enough to attack him, they've got to hope he makes a mistake himself.
Adrian Lee, digital editor at Maclean's Magazine, says it doesn't matter why Americans tune in to Canada — for the fashion or the Trudeaus' good looks — it's good for Canadians.
NDP MP for Windsor West Brian Masse, vice-chair of the Canada-United States Interparliamentary Group, says he hopes Trudeau will raise the bridge with President Obama and that progress will be made on the important border crossing soon.
