OTTAWA (Reuters) – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday said he was concerned China could broaden its crackdown on Canada’s exports and said he might seek a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on the margins of a major summit this month.
China, locked in a major dispute with Canada, has already blocked imports of Canadian canola seed and looks set to boost customs’ examinations of pork shipments. Trudeau made his comments during a televised news conference in northern France.
