British PM to visit Canada

Will meet with PM Harper before addressing House of Commons

British Prime Minister David Cameron is making his first solo visit to Canada Thursday, when he will be flying to Ottawa after making a speech to the UN General Assembly in New York. Cameron will meet privately with Prime Minister Stephen Harper before addressing the House of Commons, a regular occurrence for the leaders of countries with close relations to Canada. Cameron was in Toronto last year to participate in the G20 Summit. It is expected that the two prime ministers will discuss issues such as the flagging European economy and the ongoing NATO mission in Libya.
