Mulroney praises Americas policy

Former prime minister Brian Mulroney has commended the government's approach to international trade in Latin America, reported the Canadian Press. At a meeting celebrating the 20th anniversary of Canada joining the Organization of American States, Mr. Mulroney said that Canadian interests in the region were being served by free trade agreements established by the Harper government. In recent years, Mr. Mulroney has been more supportive of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada officials than of the government's foreign policy, so his speech represents a shift in praise.
