Chinese Premier, Li Keqiang, recently visited the famous Canadian ice hockey team Canadiens de Montréal during his visit to Canada.
The Premier flew from Ottowa to Montreal on the morning of the 23rd September and went to the stadium of Canadiens de Montréal directly from the airport.
The Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau met Premier Li at the stadium in the Bell Centre. Both of them received a No. 1 team jersey and started the game wearing the jerseys. Young Chinese Canadians then played an exhibition game. Premier Li was then shown round the Bell Centre, the prestigious sports, entertainment and business complex.
Following his arrival in Canada on the 21st, the visit to the Bell Centre was a special occasion with the aim of increasing the bilateral relationship between China and Canada and to facilitate collaboration in economics and trade. Many of the World’s major media reported on the visit to the Bell Centre including the the appearance at the hockey arena there.
