PM delivers a toast during a business luncheon with the President of the French Republic

Mr. President, we are already nearing the end of your stay in our capital, following the first leg of your visit yesterday in my home province of Alberta.

I must say that it is truly the first pan-Canadian French presidential visit, which reflects the reality of our modern relationship and we appreciate that.

During our meeting in Banff, we were able to tour the garden of Canada-France relations.

It is a large garden, of which the French planted over 400 years ago is still growing.
