Today Justin Trudeau finally made time in his busy schedule to visit the new president of the United States. Since Trump was elected back in November, Trudeau has visited Cuba, Argentina, Peru, Liberia and Madagascar.
And while Trudeau was swanning around Havana, Trump was meeting with leaders like Theresa May of the United Kingdom, and more recently Japan’s Shinzo Abe and his wife. They spent a few days with Trump and his wife Melanie, meeting, golfing.
And we Canadians — well, our prime minister got a lunch date.
Theresa May got a promise from Trump to negotiate a free trade deal with the UK. Then Trump reaffirmed America’s alliance with Japan against North Korea. A big win.
So what did Canada get?
Good news on trade? On jobs, taxes or energy?
We got… a round table on women’s issues.
Well, it’s over, anyway. No mean tweet by Trump, sending our dollar into a tailspin. No sneering remark by Trudeau. (That we know of.)
Just avoiding a trade war or a border wall counts as a win today. Hopefully Trudeau will limit his visits to an annual basis. For all of our sakes…
THEN: Author, columnist and Rebel contributor Candice Malcolm joins me to talk more about the Prime Minister's visit to Washington, DC.
NEXT: Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein comes on to explain why the cost of Premier Wynne's cap and trade scheme just doubled, and why it won't reduced carbon emissions anyway.
FINALLY: I read you messages to me!
PS: We're having a free speech rally in Toronto on Wednesday, February 15 (6pm to 8pm) to protest Motion M-103. I'll be there, so will Faith Goldy but there are more special guests on the roster, such as some Conservative Party leadership candidates.
VISIT FreedomRally.ca for all the details. It's free, it's indoors — please join us and like-minded, freedom loving Canadians to speak out against the motion that will restrict all our Charter rights.
