Over in the European Union, they’re nailing down the final details of a massive trade deal — really the biggest one for Canada since our free trade deal with the U.S.
Harper’s government did all of the heavy lifting, but some final negotiations remained, so Trudeau’s team went over to finish the job.
Then Chrystia Freeland started crying.
She actually wrote about crying, and complained about being away from her family (even though she’s the Minister of International Trade...)
She says she can’t believe the other side was being tough — especially when Canada is so “nice.”
And here’s the insane thing:
That “mommy blog” type melt-down was so awesome, in the eyes of Trudeau’s Liberals, that it was translated and sent out as an official government press release. I’m serious.
Justin Trudeau really wanted to show what he could do with a 50 per cent female cabinet. But Freeland’s only real business experience was a complete disaster, costing her old employer tens of millions of dollars and wiping out hundreds of jobs.
It’s a laugh now, but let’s see who’s laughing — and who’s crying — four years from now, when these incompetent tokens have had time to do real damage...
Tonight's guests: Aaron Wudrick of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation comes on to talk about the Bombardier bailout (sign our StopBackingBombardier.ca petition); then Saskatchewan radio host John Gormley says Brad Wall is the only premier standing up against Justin Trudeau's carbon tax.
