G7 leaders -- consisting of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States -- were shattered by their failure to convince U.S. president Donald Trump to reverse its policy of June 1 of Imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union.
Both Canada and Mexico had opposed the imposition of U.S.tariffs since it would reportedly create instability in investment.
Many Canadian companies across the country had already been reconsidering their investment policies and plans.
While in Washington, Freeland, who had been named Diplomat of the Year by Foreign Policy magazine, is hoping to draw large crowds during her acceptance speech in an awards gala in front of ambassadors, journalists and lawmakers.
Freeland would also try to re-establish trade talks with the U.S. hoping to see lifting of U.S. tariffs.
