  • Harper not expected to lift visa requirements for Mexican travellers

    Prime Minister Stephen Harper is not expected to lift visa requirements for Mexican travellers during a leaders’ summit in Mexico next week, a senior government source has confirmed to CTV News.

    Canada imposed a visa requirement on Mexican travellers in 2009 in an effort to clamp down on the increasing number of false refugee claimants.

    The matter may be a topic of discussion when Harper travels to Toluca, Mexico for a North American leaders’ summit with U.S. President Barack Obama and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Feb. 19.
