Theresa May heads for Canada amid row over ‘backseat driver’ Boris Johnson

Trudeau made the comments during an appearance with British Prime Minister Theresa May, who says Canada and the United Kingdom will work together to defend Bombardier, which has a factory in Northern Ireland. "I want to see a resolution that protects those jobs in Northern Ireland", she said after talks with Trudeau where both leaders agreed to work together to stress that Boeing should back down.

"There will be a preliminary judgment in the USA next week in relation to this case but that will just be a preliminary judgment so it will be possible for us to continue to work together to try and bring about the resolution that we want", she said.

Mrs May's one-day visit to Canada is focused on trade and the dispute over aircraft manufacturer Bombardier.

"That's not the way the world should operate".

The Trudeau government vowed during the 2015 campaign it would not buy expensive F35 aircraft to replace Canada's aging F-18s, and it said previous year Ottawa would look to buy 18 Super Hornets, produced by Boeing, to meet Canada's military obligations while it re-starts the competition to find a long-term replacement.

They will be replaced by Lindelof and Smalling, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo remain absent through knee injuries. The Old Trafford outfit begin their campaign on Tuesday, hosting Swiss side FC Basel in the opening group stage match.

The U.S. Commerce Department is now investigating the complaint, and is expected to release its preliminary findings next week. It challenges Ottawa and Quebec governments' support for Bombardier's C-series passenger jet program as unfair trade subsidies. "Personally I will be contacting our sister unions in Canada to ask for their assistance in pressing Boeing to meet with the Canadian government on these very serious matters", he said. Sajjan declined to comment.

The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is to provisionally take effect on Thursday, removing 99 per cent of customs duties between the two sides.

A spokesman for Downing Street said earlier that Britain hopes to "use (CETA) as the basis of our own bilateral trading arrangement (with Canada) once we have left the European Union".

"We will continue to stand up for jobs and stand up for the excellent airplane that is the Bombardier CSeries aircraft", Trudeau said. "We will be able to move forward in a smooth transition that keeps the essence of CETA applicable to the U.K.in ways that will respect the EU's requirements and rules", said Trudeau. May raised the issue with Trump in a call earlier this month and told reporters in Ottawa she would do so again this week on the margins of the United Nations.
