Canada also got a shout out on "Canada (and Australia's) merit based immigration system" after Trudeau had said that he would be advocating to Trump that the Americans adopt aspects of Canada's system.

I can't believe that Trump actually likes Trudeau, but Trudeau's diplomacy seems to be working, maybe too well.

Here's a G&M article on why the Canadian Immigration system wouldn't actually be emulated by Trump

... to ditch her gitch and go for the down low, the Trumps in a word, are smitten.

I'm sure you'll appreciate this top notch critical analysis of international affairs and global trends by a source beyond dispute:

"People are freaking out over the hotness of young Justin Trudeau"

https://ca.style.yahoo.com/people-ar...152957550.html

"It’s no secret that the internet has a crush on Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Even before the son of former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau made his bid for PM, he was making headlines (and was often the topic of memes and jokes) for his good looks.

He’s even been dubbed “PM Steal Yo’ Girl.”

Check out the glint of man-love in The Donald's eye!




"The love seems to be spread worldwide — and with a global crush growing, some people are even considering relocating to Canada.

“OK, I’m sold! I so wanna move to Canada! Hubba Hubba,” one user wrote.

OK, we doubt she’s serious — but still. More than ever, the thirst is real."

PM Trudeau may be too charming for his own good.

Justin Trudeau Brings Ivanka Trump to Broadway Show
By MICHAEL PAULSONMARCH 15, 2017
The surprise pairing at the new musical “Come From Away” was rich with symbolism, as Mr. Trudeau tries to maintain his country’s close relationship with the United States despite substantial differences in public policy. Ms. Trump, the president’s daughter and a close adviser, sat in Row F between Mr. Trudeau and Nikki R. Haley, the American ambassador to the United Nations, and directly behind a former Canadian prime minister, Jean Chrétien.

That was the play "come from away" about Newfoundlanders taking care of stranded passengers in the days following 911. When Trudeau announced he was attending I decided to buy a ticket to make a quick flip profit and got the last one. Made a little money too.

I see young Mr Trudeau is singing along with Pres Trump and saying that "Assad has to go" after the gas debacle on innocent civilians and should face the World Court, sounds a good idea but hey wait a minute didnt a guy named Bush do the same thing but with convential bombs in Iraq andthen a law was passed in the US that bans presidents from being charged with war crimes...
as Orwell wrote " some men are more equal than others".......

Nothing ever changes,the winners will always write history....

Does it matter? The ethics commission cleared him. PM Trudeau is no longer under investigation. That's enough to satisfy me.
