Theresa May expects 'seamless' transition to trading with Canada post-Brexit

Bombardier jobs: Boeing accused of 'pure hypocrisy' Bombardier accuses Boeing of 'pure hypocrisy'

Theresa May has promised to do "all she can" to head off a trade dispute threatening thousands of jobs in Northern Ireland as part of her top-level talks with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Boeing launched a trade dispute with Montreal-based Bombardier earlier this year.

"This is an issue I have already raised with President Trump and I will of course be raising this with Prime Minister Trudeau as well", said the Prime Minister.

The case was inspired by the 2016 purchase by Delta Air Lines to buy up to 125 C Series airliners from Bombardier.

Boeing has claimed that Bombardier is in receipt of illegal subsidies that allow them to produce their CSeries passenger plane for major United States airline Delta for less than it costs to build.

Prime Minister May is vulnerable in Northern Ireland politically, post-Brexit.

The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is to provisionally take effect on Thursday, removing 99 per cent of customs duties between the two sides.

Mrs May hopes to use Ceta as a model for a new bilateral arrangement between Britain and Canada to be introduced "swiftly" after Brexit.

Under EU laws, the United Kingdom was prohibited from sealing a foreign trade agreement until such a time as it finalises its exit from the bloc, so instead has set up "working groups" overseas in nations such as Japan and the U.S., as well as one with yet another Commonwealth partner in Australia.

Apple Launches Watch Series 3 With Cellular Features
Apple Watch has become the world's number one watch, surpassing the likes of Rolex and Fossil, the tech giant's boss said today. This means that the Apple TV 4K won't bother its users with performance issues at least for a couple of years.

Speaking ahead of the visit, the Prime Minister said her visit was about recognising our past but also looking ahead to our bright future. The visit was about "looking ahead to our bright future" and both nations shared "ambitions to lead on the world stage and progressive values", including free trade and respect for worldwide law, May said.

"When we come together and work as one to project our shared values on the world stage, we form a powerful union".

May's visit to Ottawa comes as British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called for a clean break with the European Union in a 4,000 word essay for the Daily Telegraph newspaper.

The Foreign Secretary's intervention just days before Mrs May's landmark speech sparked speculation that her rival is preparing a leadership challenge. The trade relationship between the two economics is worth £15.2bn a year, with over 10,000 British companies exporting goods to Canada.

Mrs May will also welcome the appointment of Brigg & Goole MP Andrew Percy as her trade envoy to Canada.

The UK-Canada bilateral trade relationship is thought to be worth 15.2 billion euros a year, while Britain is the second biggest destination for Canadian investment overseas, with 1.75 billion euros invested in the country since March.

"British and Canadian soldiers, sailors and airmen and women have fought and died alongside each other in the pursuit of freedom, including at the Battle of Britain, where 23 courageous Canadian servicemen lost their lives".

"But we won't do business with a company that's busy trying to sue us and trying to put our aerospace workers out of business".

"This copy-and-paste Brexit is a huge waste of time and resources".
