Canada's PM to meet with Obama at White House

TORONTO- December 2, 2011 Andrew MacDougall, a spokesman for Harper, says the prime minister will travel to Washington on Wednesday where he will discuss economic competitiveness, trade and security.

The measures are expected to include screening to reduce bottlenecks at the border, the use of new technologies, sharing information among law enforcement agencies and identifying potential threats early.

Canada is the United States' largest trading partner, with more than $1 billion in goods crossing the border every day.

Harper and Obama met last February to announce a broad road map of the initiative.
