Sir Ron and Canadian PM in talks

Canadian  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Antigua and Barbuda’s non-resident High Commissioner to Canada Sir Ronald Sanders held talks over visa restrictions yesterday.

Trudeau received Sir Ron who was recently named High Commissioner to Canada.

“High Commissioner Sanders put a proposal to Prime Minister Trudeau for a mechanism to issue visas that might be less burdensome and more time saving than the present arrangement,” a government statement said.

“The Prime Minister undertook to request his officials to look into the proposal,” the statement added.

Sir Ronald presented a letter from Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister, Gaston Browne, to Prime Minister Trudeau.

The Antigua and Barbuda High Commissioner and the Prime Minister reportedly discussed a number of matters of interest to both countries, including the effects of Climate Change and Global warming.

Prime Minister Trudeau assured Sir Ronald of the Canadian government’s commitment to working with Caribbean countries on combatting this major global challenge, according to the government’s statement.

Canada and Antigua and Barbuda have a long history of friendship and cooperation at both the bilateral and international levels. Prime Minister Trudeau and High Commissioner Sanders agreed that the traditional close  relations between the countries is a strong basis for exploring new ways of cooperation.

  1. According to a government statement, “High Commissioner Sanders put a proposal to Prime Minister Trudeau for a mechanism to issue visas that might be less burdensome and more time saving than the present arrangement”.

    Is that equal to an embassy or even a small consulate here in Antigua and Barbuda? That certainly would make things less burdensome and more time convenient for our citizens.

  2. Sending Ron to negotiate Antigua visa issues with Canada, is like Mexico sending El Chapo to straighten out drug smuggling issues with the US. I can see Trudeau mind racing as he mentally checks off the IHI and other scandals this guy has been implicated in.
