Re: What has the PM done right for Canada?Oct 4th, 2018
I'm sure there are some Canadian families that would be ahead of the game if they could only be treated as well as illegal border jumpers.

How is it that Our idiot Boy Justin can be caught groping a reporters ass - in public no less- and LIE-berals expect that we will shrug off the negative experience the reporter has written about?
While at the same time HYPOCRITE LIE-berals are going berserk because some woman - who may very well be in the pay of LIE-beral enemies trying to hurt Trump any way they can - CLAIMS that Kavanaugh grabbed her ass at a party???
The Kokanee Grope WAS PROVEN...........the Kavanaugh business is NOT PROVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The LIE-beral understanding of justice and law is fatally POISONED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OTTAWA - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has set off on a 10-day voyage across Europe and Asia to pursue his oft-stated goal of finding markets for Canadian goods and services beyond the United States.
Trudeau travels first to France, then on to summits with other world leaders in Singapore and Papua New Guinea, looking to push trade across the Pacific.
Observers say Trudeau's biggest test will be in the last two stops.
Canada has shown repeated interest in trading with Asian nations on the Pacific Rim over the years, but has failed to make sustained progress in a region where trade deals often depend on personal relationships.
International Trade Minister Jim Carr will join Trudeau there, where he will have face-time with leaders from a 10-nation bloc known as the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and then with a larger group of world leaders at the annual APEC leaders' summit.
"For a domestic audience, the prime minister and other ministers will have to demonstrate that this trip advances the trade diversification agenda in a significant way," said Sen. Yuen Pau Woo, an independent appointed by Trudeau and an expert on the Asia-Pacific region.
"What our counterparts will want to hear is that Canada is not retreating into a fortress North America with the signing of NAFTA 2.0, that the trade diversification agenda is sincere and has teeth and resources and determination behind it."
Foreign-policy experts who keep track of Canada's trade interests in Asia caution that Trudeau is likely to return home with a series of project agreements rather than any major new trade treaties.
Combined, the ASEAN countries would be Canada's sixth-largest trading partner and exploratory free-trade talks with them are going slowly — though some are included in a larger trade treaty with Pacific Rim countries that Canada just ratified, meaning it will soon come into force.
Canada already has a trade deal with Europe, most of which kicked in last year, eliminating tariffs on numerous goods. But a small part of the deal still needs to be ratified by each member of the European Union.
Former Quebec premier Jean Charest, who now specializes in international business as a partner with law firm McCarthy Tetrault, said if enough countries approve the remaining portions, the deal becomes irreversible. A large European player such as France, Germany or Italy would likely seal the deal.
The unsteady political situation in Italy and German Chancellor Angela Merkel's recent move toward retirement leave France as Canada's only option to nail down the agreement quickly before European elections in the spring, Charest said.
"If you get a new parliament that is voted and campaigned against this, then you're in a new political zone," Charest said. "Trudeau should be pressing (French President Emmanuel) Macron — who controls his majority in the national assembly — to move ahead with this as rapidly as possible."
France's ambassador to Canada, Kareen Rispal, said it is better to let Europeans see the benefits of the deal, known by the acronym CETA, slowly instead of rushing into a debate about its merits before the EU elections.
European elections often turn into a protest vote and are "a call for all the populists," Rispal said.
"It's a very tricky campaign," she said. "If we have CETA in the campaign, we think it's not a good idea."
Before all the trade talk, Trudeau is to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, first at Vimy Ridge on Saturday where he will meet with veterans and tour the monument built to memorialize the "War to End All Wars."
On Sunday, Trudeau is to stand alongside more than 60 world leaders, including U.S. President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Merkel and Macron, for Armistice Day commemorations.
Some 60,000 Canadians died and 172,000 were injured during the First World War, between 1914 and 1918.
About 10,500 of those deaths happened at Vimy Ridge as Canadian troops captured the strategically important spot from the Germans.
unemployment in Canada ta 40 year lows - just like America.
while the nattys praise Trump Trudeau gets no love.

What has he done right for our country? Well, let’s see.
He’s killed any hope of getting our oil to international markets other than a pipeline that he bought and nationalized in the interest of Government control…. If you’re an anti-oil enviro zealot or a member of Tides or the Oak Foundation that’s positive.
He’s made himself an international embarrassment on his India trip….if you’re name is Jagmeet Singh, you surely give the thumbs up.
He’s killed any semblance of national unity in exchange for “diversity” and post-national multiculturalism…if you’re a refugee wanting to bring your baggage into a new country which is willing to pay your way while you reject their culture that’s positive.
He wore socks…who doesn’t think socks are a good thing?
He boldly shared his warm passion for ruthless dictators and dictatorships…if you’re a communist this is a positive step.
He put our unsupported war vets in their place when they asked for support (well except for the son of a vet who gave himself PTSD while murdering people)…if you’re against our military vets, this would be good news.
He’s balanced the numbers of female MP’s to male, putting equality of outcome over equality of opportunity and focussing like a laser beam on bigotry through identity politics…. Feminist extremists rejoice.
He’s boldly declared that terrorists deserve and will keep their Canadian citizenship, and backed up his support by paying a terrorist killer 10.5 million dollars…. Terrorists and their sympathizers surely give him the thumbs up for that.
He’s increased the debt of this country and hobbled Canadian competitiveness internationally well into the future…our competitors are surely patting him on the back.
I could go on, but why bother? There’s obviously enough Canadians who think he’s doing a good job, they don’t need me bragging him up any more.

Another alleged Canadian ISIS member has been captured in northern Syria, according to local Kurdish forces, who posted a video of the man.
In the brief video, the man identified himself as Mohamed Abdullah Mohamed and said he was an Ethiopian-Canadian.
Kurdish forces said he was arrested by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces in Deir al-Zour, the last ISIS stronghold in Syria.
With his capture, the number of Canadians known to be in the custody of Kurdish forces is now four men, three women and seven children.
Global News revealed last October that Kurdish fighters had captured several Canadians affiliated with ISIS, including a former member of a sniper unit.
MPs responded by passing a motion calling on the government to table a strategy for bringing ISIS members to justice.
In December, the government released a report outlining the difficulties involved in collecting enough evidence to prosecute Canadians who had taken part in terrorist activity abroad.
“Investigating, arresting, charging and prosecuting any Canadian involved in terrorism or violent extremism is the government’s main objective and priority,” the six-page report said.
“However, there are often challenges associated with the collection of evidence and the use of intelligence and sensitive information as courtroom evidence, particularly when alleged criminal offences took place on a battlefield abroad.”
About half the estimated 190 Canadians who have left to take part in terrorist activity went to the Syria-Iraq-Turkey region. Another 60 have returned, but few of them had been ISIS fighters.
Only four of those who left Canada for Syria and returned have been charged. Two were convicted and two are awaiting trial.
Kurdish forces have been appealing to governments to take back their citizens, who are being held in makeshift prisons and camps in northeast Syria.
But Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale has said the government was under no legal obligation to facilitate the return of the Canadians captured in Syria because Canada did not participate in their detention.
A 2017 briefing note for Goodale, however, took the opposite view, saying that Canadians had the constitutional “right to enter” the country. “Therefore, even if a Canadian engaged in terrorist activity abroad, the government of Canada must facilitate their return to Canada,” it said.
Changed their narrative on ISIS fighters
