Members of Parliament from all political stripes passed a motion unanimously on Monday calling on the government to invite U.S. president-elect Joe Biden and vice-president-elect Kamala Harris to visit and congratulating them on their victories.
Canada is traditionally either the first or second visit for new U.S. presidents once they take office but outgoing President Donald Trump has never come for an official or state visit, save a brief working trip in Quebec for the G7 Summit in Charlevoix in 2018.
