Transcript: Trudeau missed TPP meeting due to ‘misunderstanding’: Champagne

CAPTION: International Trade Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne says Justin Trudeau missed a Trans-Pacific Partnership meeting due to a “scheduling issue.” Some international media blame the prime minister’s absence for stalling the deal. (Nov. 10, 2017) PLACELINE: Danang, Vietnam CREDIT: The Canadian Press STORYLINE: Efforts to reach an agreement this weekend on a Pacific Rim trade pact appeared to collapse Friday when persistent concerns over the deal, including Canada's, forced the abrupt cancellation of a scheduled leaders' meeting.

Some international media quickly blamed Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for the meeting's sudden cancellation.

The heads of the 11 countries that have been negotiating a revised Trans-Pacific Partnership had planned to meet on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation leaders' summit in Danang, Vietnam.

Trudeau did not go to the conference room at the scheduled time to meet the other TPP leaders.

However, the Prime Minister's Office insisted that Canada was not the only country to raise concerns.

A spokeswoman said Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the meeting's chair, cancelled the event after a 50-minute face-to-face discussion with Trudeau.
