Visa showdown between Canada and the EU

Marie-Anne Coninsx, the EU ambassador to Canada, says the demand that Canada remove the visa requirements is in keeping with EU policy. “It’s nothing new, we have a European Union law, legislation, which aims at achieving visa-free travel for all our citizens of member states, to every third country where our people can travel.” she says. “Having only a visa request for two of our member-states, for the people of our member-states, is a discrimination which for us is inacceptable.”
