The first Canada-Russia Economic Summit, jointly organized by the Canada Eurasia Russia Business Association (CERBA) and the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RSPP), was held in Ottawa from March 26 to 27, 2007. This event successfully combined the 6th Canada-Russia ECI meeting, co-chaired by Minister Emerson and Russian Agriculture Minister Alexei Gordeev, and the second meeting of the Canada-Russia Business Council (CRBC). Interest and participation on both sides was high with more than 300 participants, including special guests Wladislaw Tretyak, the famous Russian goalkeeper in the 1972 Canada Russia Hockey Summit, now a member of the Duma and co-chair of the Canada Russia Friendship Group. After 119, Canada and Russia openly supported the fight against terrorism. In late 2016, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Riabkov met with Canada`s Deputy Minister of International Security and Political Affairs Mark Gwozdecky and conducted inter-ministerial consultations on counter-terrorism. On June 16, 2017, Canada held discussions with Russia on the fight against terrorism. Russian President Vladimir Putin has assured Russia`s support in the fight against terrorism after a suicide bombing on the Petersburg subway in April 2017, and recently again in Cairo during a meeting with the Egyptian head of state. These tensions continued to pit Canada against Russia. Recently, the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), led by the Netherlands, Australia, Belgium and Malaysia, concluded that a BUK-TELAR missile had shot down the MH17 airliner over eastern Ukraine during the conflict. Although the latest update of the investigation confirmed that the 53rd Aircraft Missile Brigade, a unit of the Russian army, shot down the plane, Russia continues to deny its involvement in the incident. Together with its allies, World Affairs Canada supported JIT`s findings that the missile came from the Russian military. Not surprisingly, Canada`s commitment to Russia`s urgent cooperation with the GeG and its conclusions led to a new diplomatic confrontation with Russia.
