Canada’s campaign for a United Nations Security Council seat has moved online, as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau takes virtual meetings with key voting blocs. David Akin looks at Canada’s chances against Norway and Ireland, ahead of the June 21 vote.

Canada will co-host a major United Nations conference on dealing with the economic crisis spawned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
