EV Spat Looms Over Biden’s Meeting With Canadian, Mexican Leaders

When President Biden hosts counterparts from Canada and Mexico at the White House on Thursday, he will face visitors who have accused his administration of promoting electric vehicles and union jobs at the expense of trading relationships with neighboring countries.

The president will meet with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador in the White House. The first trilateral summit since 2016 is expected to touch on issues including Canadian-operated pipelines, immigration at the Mexican border and the coronavirus pandemic.
