Easter will serve as co-chairman with Senator Janis Johnston.

The Canada-United States Inter-Parliamentary Group brings together legislators from the parliament of Canada and members of the US House of Representatives and Senate, to discuss issues in detail and map out resolutions.

“It is important that Canadian parliamentarians present a strong and united presence to our US counterparts and that in speaking with one voice, we move the issues of importance to Canadians forward,” said Easter.

    You got your hands full with the decisions Justin is making regarding US security & cooperation with the war on terror . If the government changes in November , Canada will be viewed in a total different light which I fully believe is going to hurt us big time re trade & border issues . Canada bringing in so many un vetted people has already been mentioned in the present run for the White House .
