During his visit to Canada, Lord Alderdice also met with representatives from the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC, LI full-member) including Bob Oliphant MP and former LI VP on the Bureau Senator Art Eggleton and discussed among other issues the British general elections and furthering the cooperation between the party and Liberal International.
