REUTERS/Jennifer Gauthier/File PhotoAnd even if Huawei Technologies Co Ltd Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou does return to China, relations between China and Canada still face major challenges. “The only way to put real pressure on China is for a number of like-minded nations to form a common front. The United States are the key player here and without them, nothing will happen,” said one person directly familiar with the policy reset talks. Like-minded democracies in the region such as Japan or South Korea, are important allies for any coordinated China policy, said a person familiar with the matter, who added, however: “Without the United States, Canada doesn’t have a China policy.”

REUTERS/Blair GableNEW DELHI (Reuters) - India summoned Canada’s ambassador on Friday and said comments made by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over protests by farmers near Delhi were an interference in its domestic affairs and would seriously hurt bilateral ties. Canada is home to an influential Sikh community and Indian leaders say there are some fringe groups there that are still sympathetic to the cause of an independent Sikh state called Khalistan, carved out of India. The Indian foreign ministry said comments made by Trudeau and other leaders had emboldened radical groups and they were a risk to its diplomatic staff based in Canada. The Indian government has held talks with the farmers to end the impasse and persuade them that farm reforms were in their interest in the long-term.

Easing coronavirus concerns in Canada led TD Bank to report lower loan loss provisions and flat digital growth in its fiscal Q4. Easing coronavirus concerns in Canada led TD Bank to report lower loan loss provisions and flat digital growth. Digital metrics in TD's Canadian retail unit also suggest that lessened pandemic concerns may be leading fewer customers to rely on digital channels. As with banks in the US, the big question remains whether the decision by TD Bank to pull back on loan loss provisions was premature as coronavirus outbreaks surge once more. Since TD's fiscal Q4 ended in October, positive cases have continued to swell in Canada, potentially requiring the bank to reconsider the pandemic's long-term impact.

Canada PM Trudeau indicates U.S. border restrictions to last a long time

Trudeau’s comments were a clear indication that the border restrictions will last well into 2021. The two countries have highly integrated economies and Canada sends 75% of its goods exports to the United States every month. “Until the virus is significantly more under control everywhere around the world, we’re not going to be releasing the restrictions at the border,” Trudeau told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. when asked about the issue. But the premiers of Canada’s major provinces have repeatedly said they have no interest in reopening the border as long as cases of COVID-19 continue to escalate in the United States. A second wave is also sweeping across Canada, where authorities are starting to reimpose restrictions on businesses and limiting the size of gatherings.

TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada’s third quarter annualized growth soared by a record 40.5%, rebounding from a historic plunge in the second quarter, as businesses and stores reopened from COVID-19 lockdowns, Statistics Canada said on Tuesday. FILE PHOTO: A family passes a house for sale listed at a price of $999,000 ($799,000 USD) on Mount Pleasant Road in Toronto, Ontario, Canada August 6, 2017. There were some moderate upward revisions to the prior two quarters, which slightly softens the blow. On that front it’s mildly encouraging that September’s gain was still relatively solid and October did manage, at least a first blush, looks like it printed some modest growth. So the economy had a bit of momentum going into the shutdowns.”

REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque/File PhotoOTTAWA (Reuters) - Canada on Saturday blocked bulk exports of prescription drugs if they would create a shortage at home, in response to outgoing U.S. President Donald Trump’s efforts to allow imports from Canada to lower some drug prices for Americans. The Canadian measure went into effect on Friday, just days before a U.S. “Importation Prescription Drugs” rule that would eventually allow licensed U.S. pharmacists or wholesalers to import in bulk certain prescription drugs intended for the Canadian market. Trump touted the plan in his first debate with President-elect Joe Biden, who has also said during his campaign that he would set up a similar import plan to try to reduce prescription drug costs for Americans. “Canada is a small market, representing 2% of global drug sales, that sources 68% of its drugs internationally. Many of Canada’s drug suppliers opposed Trump’s plan, saying it could lead to shortages.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines DAL.N and Canada's WestJet said late on Friday they had scrapped a proposed U.S.-Canada joint venture after the U.S. government demanded changes the airlines insisted were "unreasonable and unacceptable". The airlines said in a filing that the U.S. demands were “arbitrary and capricious” especially the slot divestitures. The Delta-WestJet joint venture would have had a combined 27% share of scheduled air carrier transborder capacity, while the dominant carrier, Air Canada AC.TO, has 45%. Canada, with 38 million people, is the second-largest U.S. international passenger air market after Mexico, with Toronto flights accounting for over 50% of transborder air travel demand. U.S. air carriers had urged slot divestitures at LaGuardia, noting American Airlines AAL.O, Delta and United Air Lines UAL.O control 83% of all slots, with Delta controlling 45% of flights.
