Arlene Bynon, Colin Robertson, Will Dubreuil, Nik Nanos, Adrian Lee, Brian Masse

Colin Robertson, former diplomat and strategic advisor at Mckenna, Long, Aldridge LLP says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is not just a leader, but seen as somewhat of a celebrity, and we can play that celebrity status to our advantage.

Will Dubreuil, director of public affairs at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, says Trudeau's visit to the U.S. is a huge honour and signifies a new era in Canada-U.S. relations.

Nik Nanos, chair of Nanos Research, says if the opposition wants to bring down Prime Minister Justin Trudeau it's not enough to attack him, they've got to hope he makes a mistake himself.

Adrian Lee, digital editor at Maclean's Magazine, says it doesn't matter why Americans tune in to Canada — for the fashion or the Trudeaus' good looks — it's good for Canadians. 

NDP MP for Windsor West Brian Masse, vice-chair  of the Canada-United States Interparliamentary Group, says he hopes Trudeau will raise the bridge with President Obama and that progress will be made on the important border crossing soon.
