The diplomatic conversation between Ottawa and Washington has been focused on pipelines for years, but that topic appears to have been traded in for a discussion on peacekeeping and how both countries will meet the challenges of an increasingly turbulent world.

It is a subject that is expected to be on the agenda when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Barack Obama spend time together today behind closed doors. The meeting comes after the conclusion of the Three Amigos Summit and before the U.S. president's historic address to Parliament.
