Justin Trudeau In Vancouver For Globe 2016 Summit

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is making his rounds in BC over the last week.

Globe 2016—a sustainability summit, kicks off today at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Trudeau is the keynote speaker at the conference—which is North America’s largest international environmental business summit.

There will be nearly 2,000 business and government leaders from over 50 countries present today, until the event ends on March 4th.

Earlier in the week, Trudeau spoke at a green economy initiative called Smart Prosperity and also announced he will commit $150 million to two new clean tech funds.

He’s also been spotted out and about having some fun—such as hitting the slopes in Whistler and taking his kids to FlyOver Canada.
