Christie to talk trade, energy in Canada

Gov. Christie will lead a state delegation to Canada for two days next month, taking his second foreign trip in several months as he weighs a run for president in 2016.

The Dec. 4-5 trip will include visits to Calgary, Toronto, and the capital, Ottawa, with an aim of strengthening business ties between New Jersey and Canada, the state’s largest trading partner, Christie’s office said Monday.

In particular, the Republican governor will focus on the energy sector, his office said – as he did during a September trade mission he led to Mexico, where he gave a speech calling for greater investment in energy-related infrastructure to bolster a “North American energy renaissance.”

“Too often, our neighbors in Mexico and Canada have felt that they were an afterthought in U.S. foreign policy. My view is that they should be our first thought,” Christie said during the speech.
