Thank you for the opportunity to speak today.

I appreciate the warm welcome to Ottawa and the hospitality of the Canadian American Business Council.

I welcome the opportunity to be here in Ottawa, your Nation’s capital. I also welcome the opportunity to escape, for a short period of time, my Nation’s capital. As my mentor and friend Bob Gates, the former Secretary of Defense, used to say, any day out of Washington is a good day.
