Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has signed a historic free trade deal with the European Union.
Trudeau arrived in Brussels to meet the European leaders who have now come to terms with a deal after seven years of negotiations.
The Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, which is also known as CETA, was almost abandoned by the socialist government of the Belgian region of Wallonia.
However, the final step in completing CETA was eliminated on Friday when Wallonia officially voted to leave its opposition to the deal.
The deal’s supporters say it will boost trade by billions through cuts, including agriculture, pharmaceuticals and the auto industry.
Prime Minister Trudeau’s trip was temporarily halted when the aircraft he was travelling on had a mechanical problem, which ended up having the flight return back to Ottawa for about a half-hour on Saturday night.
The flight then managed to depart once again and Trudeau arrived in Brussels safely on Sunday morning.
