Phil Gordon had a chance to speak with the Mayor of Montréal, Gérald Tremblay. He also met with Québec airport authorities to discuss the possibility of a direct link between Montréal and Phoenix, in order to boost tourism between the two cities and promote relations and business partnerships between companies and institutions. The Délégation du Québec à Los Angeles (Québec government office in Los Angeles) provided support for the preparation of the mission.
Phoenix, Arizona, is the fifth-largest city in the United States. Arizona is one of the 13 western U.S. states covered by the Délégation du Québec à Los Angeles.
