RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Gov. Terry McAuliffe is set to travel to Canada this week to promote Virginia business with a top importer. McAuliffe’s office said Monday the governor will head a four-day marketing tour starting Tuesday. The governor will visit Toronto and Montreal during the trade mission. He will also go to Boston. Canada is a major trading partner with Virginia, importing more than $3.3 billion in manufactured goods in 2015. McAuliffe said he plans to promote Virginia oysters, wine, craft beer and travel opportunities during the trip. The Democratic governor has made economic development a cornerstone of his administration and frequently takes trade missions abroad.
