Strong U.S. Good for Canada, Prime Minister Trudeau Says

OTTAWA, Rabi’I 06, 1437, December 17, 2015, SPA — Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Wednesday that “having the United States economy pick up steam is ultimately going to be good for Canada.”
Trudeau was asked about the likely move by the Federal Reserve, the U.S. central bank, to increase interest rates.
“There will be opportunities for our exporters to benefit from it, but obviously we are always looking at the challenges that a lower dollar will pose to Canadian producers,” Trudeau told reporters.
