This week Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is in the United Kingdom to talk with government officials about trade.
The four-day trip is focused on relationship-building with the UK's Conservative government in an attempt to lay the groundwork for a Canada-UK free trade agreement. Scheer's focus remains creating jobs for Canadians and diversifying our trade relationships.
Arrived in London for several days of meetings to advance the interests of Canadians. If elected in 2019, a Conservative Government would pursue a free trade agreement with the United Kingdom. 🇨🇦 🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/aqZi3iKB2W— Andrew Scheer (@AndrewScheer) March 6, 2018
