Is it the dawn of a new Trudeau era?

Pierre Trudeau, was among the first western leaders to recognize “new China” when he established diplomatic ties in 1970, later becoming the first Canadian PM to travel there in 1973.

NOW, more than 4 decades later, his son, Justin Trudeau Canada’s newest PM and his wife and daughter are making their first official visit to China. They arrived in Beijing today to start their 6 day visit. Exciting times as Canada will strengthen ties with the world’s new economic superpower, China.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with China President Xi JinpingThere are many opinions out there regarding China and regarding Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister. All I can say is after having lived in China, I like that Canada wants to strengthen the relationship and Justin…well no one can say that he isn’t out there representing Canada in world politics. He is NOT taking a back seat. Love their families visibility in the media representing Canada. His wife Sophie is such a refreshing inspiration to all women.

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
