Yesterday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau joined his G20 colleagues for a tele-summit on the situation in Afghanistan. According to the Canadian Press, he “used his speaking time … to push the resettlement of Afghan refugees,” but gave “no sign of any renewed Canadian financial commitment” to help international organizations responding to the humanitarian crisis.
Today, he’s firing up his webcam again to “virtually deliver remarks” at the Malmö International Forum on Holocaust Remembrance and Combating Antisemitism, a one-day conference hosted by the Swedish government. (10:15 AM)
Later this afternoon, he’ll hold a private, in-person meeting with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Big City Mayors’ Caucus. It’s likely the mayors will expect him to say how, exactly, his newly re-elected government plans to ensure cities are part of any and all discussions of the post-pandemic recovery. (2 PM)
