Trump honouring Pierre Trudeau at the Waldorf Astoria in 1981.

Trump's hand is on top in the handshake, trying to show physical dominance, but Justin Trudeau had reached out first and quickly gotten close to Trump, refusing to let him pull him into him. (Remember that ten hour handshake with the Japanese prime minister which Trump dominated?) Body language experts say Trudeau held his own with the President in their initial meeting.

 

The fact that Trump indicated he had admired Justin's father may be an indication that the son gets a bit of a pass with him that he might not have otherwise. Justin was all diplomacy yesterday in Washington, but he can also be a scrapper, like his father. One of his favourite past times has been boxing.

Dumping billions of gallons of raw sewage into the oceans isn't being a role model for the world, unless you are a serial polluter.


Things are never so bad they can't be made worse.

Trudeau: I Didn't Come To Washington To Lecture President Trump

 

Justin Trudeau: "The last thing Canadians expect is for me to come down and lecture another country on how they choose to govern," he said. "My role... is to continue to govern in such a way that reflects Canadians' approach and be a positive example in the world."

 

Diplomatic as Trudeau's response was, one can still see a sly dig at Trump's America first style with his second sentence.

A 20 minute video about Canadian politics.

There Are 66,719 Empty Mansions In Vancouver

Last Thursday, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson said that "it’s unacceptable for so much housing to be treated as a commodity," even if, ironically, it was the government's own actions which allowed the city's houses to become an offshore piggybank for wealthy Chinese. "Housing is for homes first, and as investments second. Vancouver will continue to do all it can to maintain and protect affordable homes, and pursue all tools available to ensure the best use of all our housing."

As Bloomberg adds, concerns are growing that the Pacific Coast city is turning into a playground for the rich as luxury real estate squeezes industry and prices out the middle class. The provincial economy leads Canadian growth and job creation, yet its public schools are suffering from declining enrollment and households earn below the national median. Businesses using Canada’s largest port struggle to carve out space, while low-wage service sector jobs cater to wealthy retirees and tourists.

Billions of litres of raw sewage, untreated waste water pouring into Canadian waterways

More than 205 billion litres of raw sewage and untreated waste water spewed into Canada's rivers and oceans last year, CBC News has learned, despite federal regulations introduced in 2012 to try to solve the problem.

 

Toilet paper washes up on beaches near small towns in Newfoundland and Labrador. In Victoria, B.C., divers report sick kelp and polluted scallops near sewage discharge pipes.

 

In fact, the amount of untreated waste water, which includes raw sewage and rain and snow runoff, that flowed into Canadian rivers and oceans last year would fill 82,255 Olympic-size swimming pools — an increase of 1.9 per cent over 2014.

 

The volume was supposed to drop as cities and towns move to comply with the standards the Conservative government adopted four years ago.

 

***********************************************************************

Nothing will ever change in Canada, they love dumping raw sewage.

Worried about Trump, asylum seekers walk cold road to Canada

More of these people would enter at border crossings, advocates say, if Canada didn't have a policy of turning many of them away when they do. The 2004 Canada-U.S. Safe Third Country Agreement requires people to apply for asylum in the first of the two countries they arrive in. Advocates argue the agreement inadvertently encourages people to dangerously sneak into Canada and make a claim rather than be rebuffed at the border.

If the government doesn't abandon this agreement, they say, it could find itself in court.

Canada Turned Away Hundreds of Security Threats Including Terrorists At Border in 2016

The government report, which was published with very little fanfare by the ruling Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, claims that 310 individuals were rejected at the border in total. Of those 310, seven were said to be active members of terrorist groups and “engaging in terrorism,” the Toronto Sun reports.

Six innocent people murdered while at prayer in a Quebec City mosque, and what do we get from Jake?  A video talking about banning illegals.

 

Don't you get it, Jake? The man accused of this barbaric act of terrorism is a right wing fanatic and Trump admirer who disliked foreigners in his province.

 

 

 

Too close to home for you to criticize him, Jake, so let's switch back to the same old hate twisted subject you love so well?
