MEXICO CITY - Mexico simply doesn't meet the federal government's requirements for visa free travel to Canada, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Tuesday.
Harper addressed the thorny issue that has threatened to overshadow his trip here. But both he and his host, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, appeared to take steps — in public, at least — to play down any tension.
The two leaders presided over the signing of an agreement to expand air travel between the two countries and renewed their vows to foster mutual economic growth.
