Trudeau makes virtual appearance at antisemitism forum, meets with mayors

A day after joining his G20 colleagues for a tele-summit on the situation in Afghanistan — during which, as per Canadian Press, he “used his speaking time … to push the resettlement of Afghan refugees,” but has thus far given “no sign of any renewed Canadian financial commitment” to support international organizations responding to the humanitarian crisis — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will fire up his webcam once 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 closed-door in-person meet-up with the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Big City Mayors’ Caucus, during which he’ll likely be expected to offer more detail on how, exactly, his newly re-elected government is planning to ensure cities are part of any and all discussions on the post-pandemic recovery. (2 PM)
