Statement on the
Canadian Parliamentary Elections
November 22, 1988
extend my congratulations to Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, whose Progressive
Conservative Party won a majority of seats in the House of Commons in
yesterday's Canadian national election. In recent years, relations between the United States and Canada have been marked by
cooperative dialog and a remarkable record of mutually beneficial achievement.
The United States looks forward to
working together with Canada to further strengthen
the ties of friendship and cooperation between Canada and the United States. In particular, we look
forward to the early implementation of the free trade agreement, which we
believe will be a positive factor in the economic future of both countries and
on the Uruguay round negotiations.
