5:16 am
apparently disinterested, didn't holding face to face talks with its neighbors. the lead is now able to lay out their priorities. we have to end the pandemic and to take decisive actions to curb the climate crisis. our highest priority is, of course, end in coven, 19, and being focused on economic recovery, strengthen supply chain support as he owns. it's important to define things together to set aside myths and prejudices, for example, to stop excluding migrants when their manpower is in high demand in canada and in the united states. mister president, is the delight to have you here for you as president also held one on one meetings . central to discussions with his mexican counterpart was migration control and reform. an issue that a shopping impacted on the relationship between the 2 countries was great to welcome back to the from mr. earlier biden and canadian prime minister justin crudo
5:17 am
talked about forging a climate change policy, particularly topical, given the flooding occurring in canada. ah, but one of the biggest developments had nothing to do with north american relations . answering a question the u. s. president confirmed, he's thinking about a diplomatic boycott of the winter olympics in china. something we're consider. still discussions focused heavily on trade between the 3 countries. and new agreement took effect last year, replacing the longstanding north american free trade pack nafta. canada is the largest trading partner of the united states. each day, some $2000000000.00 worth of goods crosses the world long. the national border and canada has been brought into the us mexico discussion concerning supply chain issues which has undermined the economies of all 3 countries. the many issues of
5:18 am
contention were not given any public airing. the lead is preferring to project to show of unity and common purpose, reviving the 3 amigos label that was applied when the summits were far more frequent. my kind of just era washington. so let's bring bruce hayman. he's a former us ambassador to canada. he joins us now from chicago via skype, and bruce haman, great, happy with a look. this is the 1st time the 3 countries have met since 2016 because the former president trump put an end to the summit. how important is this meeting and how all the 3 need to do think trying to re frame the partnership? i think that's a great point. i was the u. s. and bastard in ottawa, at the last north american leader summit prior to today. and i'll tell you sitting in those meetings in the you can't underestimate the importance of being there in person communicating with each other about shared interest, shared goals,
5:19 am
but also differences. and you have to lay those on the table, but it's so much better to do that in person. so from could no way have those meetings because of the way he treated our partners in our own region. and so now we've done this for the 1st time in 5 years, and today was a really important day, i think, resetting ourselves for these relationships that are so important. all right, so let's just talk about trade. i mean, you know, we know the u. s. is both canada and mexico was top trading partner, but they have been strains of a president biden's by american policy. this proposed electric vehicle tax. i mean, bruce, this is not the level playing field at both canada and mexico one there have always been some differences. when i was the sitting ambassador, there were always some individual unique things. we have such a large and complex trading relationship that there will be these issues that will come up. the president is trying to re format manufacturing in the united states on
5:20 am
shore manufacturing, that we've lost over many decades. and he's trying to stimulate that with these various packages. i understand the canadian and mexican frustration that is focused on by america, but make no mistake about it. these 2 countries will continue to be amongst the top 3 trading partners that we have going forward. another big issue is immigration, president biden has been pressuring mexico over the record number of migrants. we've seen arriving at the u. s. southern border. could president manuel lopez upper door perhaps use the migration issue as leverage to gain some concessions from bio never say his energy policies? but it's all about tradeoffs, as you know in the diplomatic space. it's about sitting down and having various, you know, issues and opportunities that exist. the migrant issue is a significant one for us and puts
5:21 am
a lot of stress on our border and their southern border. and i am confident that this was a very significant part of the conversation with the mexican presidents and in the north american 3 leader conversation. bruce, just a final point you. i mean, other important issues, of course a cove at 19 and the fight against climate change. we've seen all those dramatic flooding in canada. how do you see the leaders working together on those on what do you think is the future, the partnership? so the teacher, the partnership evolves on a number of levels you mentioned pandemic. we're going to have to, we're not out of this yet. as all of us know, all the work quite hopeful that this next year will bring a very different set of circumstances. it's not over yet, and we're going to have to work toward that. there are 2 borders, both north and south are very important to us. we move goods in people, but we need to do it legally. and that's an issue. it's about the economy and
5:22 am
creating jobs and building infrastructure in north america going forward. it's about energy in the evolving energy because we have such fossil fuel relationships with both mexico and canada. and that will evolve to new types of energy going forward. and then we have our geo political rest all around the world. we have nato and, and, and the operations which candidate is a part of and then the other pressures that exist. so this coming together is a very important day for the united states and for canada and mexico. bruce, i'm and really good to get your insight. thank you very much and have a talk to sarah. it's pleasure. not one of the 3 men on trial for the shooting of an unarmed black man in the us state of georgia has told a court he saw him as a threat traverse, but michael is charged with a murder mad aubrey. he chase down and shot aubrey as he jumped through the neighborhood in february last year. but michael and sissy was acting in self defense. on the 3rd day of jury deliberations and the murder trial of ca,
