The Mexico-Canada Friendship Group, which will be chaired by Deputy Ildefonso Guajardo Villarreal (PRI), has been formally installed in the Chamber of Deputies.
The legislator stressed that this group will enrich the bilateral relationship between the two countries, calling the treaty between Mexico, the United States and Canada. “The dynamics of the agenda set by Canada in the progressive part of this agreement has been very important. If the treaty we enjoy today on integration includes labor issues, labor rights, SME protection issues and basic environmental issues, it is thanks to a very important alignment of interests between the Mexican agenda and the Canadian agenda.”
The event was attended by the Chairman of the Political Coordination Council, Deputy Rubén Ignacio Moreira (PRI), who highlighted the diplomatic tradition of both countries. He recalled that several factors unite us with Canada, such as education exchange, regulated migration, tourism, among others: “We love your country, its defense of human rights, and I think we can build a working relationship there. We love really from your head of state’s perspective, your parliament’s perspective on human rights, so I think we can talk a lot about that.”
