Ontario Premier urges Canada to rebuild relationship with UAE

Canada's Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty stated the landing rights dispute between the UAE and Canada could jeopardise future business relationships (The National, 27-Jan-2011). “The UAE is kind of like the financial nerve centre for the Middle East. It would be the Chinese equivalent of Shanghai. We need to have a good trading relationship, we need to be on friendly terms with that part of the world. We’re seen in a different light, and a light we would prefer not to be seen in, in the UAE at present,” Mr McGuinty said.
