The conversation came at a timely moment in Canada-U.S. relations. News of former President Trump’s potential (and now confirmed) indictment by the Manhattan District Attorney made international headlines. President Joe Biden was soon to touch down in Ottawa for a two-day visit with Prime Minister Trudeau. The two leaders were set to discuss a range of hot-button issues, including cross-border trade, the transition to a green economy, and security concerns abroad.
