PM on a high-stakes mission, set against idyllic backdrops
Trudeau's PMO and senior ministers are preoccupied with the firms and the entrepreneurs who get their start in Canada and make their fortune elsewhere. They're concerned about recent raiding expeditions by Google and others to recruit Canadian leaders in the field of artificial intelligence.
Four big themes will drive Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's economic policy through next year's budget: innovation, infrastructure, immigration and foreign investment. Where will the money come from? Mr. Trudeau has been talking to executives at Blackrock, the world's largest asset manager, which controls $5-trillion in investments worldwide, writes Paul Wells.
