U.S. Secretary of State chooses Montreal over Toronto
Anthony Blinken, the U.S. Secretary of State, will be in Ottawa on Thursday and in Montreal on Friday for his first visit to Canada since taking charge of U.S. diplomacy.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mélanie Joly, will take the opportunity to present the most beautiful attractions of the city, reports La Presse.

However, presenting activities to a member of the U.S. government is complex because the plan must be verified and approved by the Secret Service before it can be put into action!

Blinken was supposed to leave earlier for the United States, but he kindly accepted Ms. Joly’s invitation. These few hours in Montreal prove that he has a “special” relationship with Joly.

This claim was made by an anonymous government source.

As this source said, Blinken could have chosen Toronto instead of Montreal, but he opted for the city of the Sainte-Flanelle, which may say a lot about the good relationship between him and Melanie Joly.

Ms. Joly was in Washington on September 30 for a one-on-one meeting with the Secretary of State, which will be a second meeting for the duo in a short time.
