Stéphane Dion to host Mexican, U.S. counterparts

LEE BERTHIAUME, OTTAWA CITIZEN

Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion will host his U.S. and Mexican counterparts for a day of discussions Friday in what the Liberal government hopes will be a precursor to the first Three Amigos leaders’ summit in Canada in nearly a decade. 

The environment will officially top the agenda when Dion meets with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Mexican Foreign Affairs Secretary Claudia Ruiz Massieu in Quebec City. That includes devising a North American approach to climate change, and discussing how to turn the continent into a hub for clean energy.
