Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and British Prime Minister Theresa May are meeting on Parliament Hill as she makes her first visit to Canada.

Trudeau says he and May have a wide agenda to discuss, including trade.

He says it’s a great opportunity to talk with May ahead of his trip to New York to address the United Nations General Assembly.

He says he wants to ensure that Canada’s relationship with Britain remains strong as that country moves to break from the European Union.

May says she is pleased to be in Canada and has a lot of topics to discuss – including trade, Trudeau’s efforts on behalf of women’s empowerment and ways to curb the use of the Internet by terrorists.

As the two chatted in Trudeau’s office, May chuckled that, unlike some other political visitors lately, she can’t match Trudeau in his trademark use of colourful socks.
