Guess who's coming to Ottawa???
Benjamin Netanyahu is coming to Canada! I hope I get to see him speak...
When Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu visits Canada at the end of the month he will be the first sitting prime minister to visit the country since Yitzhak Rabin in 1994.
Netanyahu, along with Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein, are expected to visit Toronto and Ottawa at the end of the month, flying to Canada from an OECD meeting in Paris where it is expected that Israel will officially be accepted as a member of that organization.
The rare trip to Canada by the prime minister is seen as a sign of appreciation for Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s staunch support for Israel, both on a declarative political level, and through the deepening and broadening of bilateral relations in various spheres, including military, intelligence and economic ones.
