Freeland Thinks That Canada Can Assume A Larger Global Role

You take out what you put in, Chrystia:

Canada will seek to play a larger role on the world stage as the United States retreats, Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland said on Tuesday, in remarks underscoring strains between Washington and its closest allies.

Freeland spoke in the wake of recent NATO and G7 summits where U.S. President Donald Trump upset world leaders to such an extent that German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed doubts about the reliability of the United States.

Freeland, noting that “international relationships that had seemed immutable for 70 years are being called into question,” stressed the value of bilateral ties with the United States, traditionally seen as Canada’s closest friend. She also made clear those bonds might loosen.

“The fact that our friend and ally has come to question the very worth of its mantle of global leadership, puts into sharper focus the need for the rest of us to set our own clear and sovereign course,” she said in an address to parliament outlining her foreign policy vision.

“For Canada that course must be the renewal, indeed the strengthening, of the postwar multilateral order,” she said.

    The fact that our friend and ally has come to question the very worth of its mantle of global leadership, puts into sharper focus the need for the rest of us to set our own clear and sovereign course,

    I suppose the idiot electorate won’t see that President Trump is doing the exact opposite of what this ditzy broad alleges.

      You just cannot make this stuff up. “Our own clear and sovereign course” when the Liberals cannot sell out our sovereignty fast enough.

  • Denis

    this means more taxpayer money to world elites!

  • Marius K

    Does she have to parade her menopause on the world stage?

    • El Martyachi

      She seems really nice though.

  • Linda1000

    The opposite as Trump is just no longer willing to pay EU’s restaurant tab for NATO. Also, Trump has given the U.N. notice that they stop their anti-Semitism and bias towards Isarael or the U.S. is pulling out.

    The mouth that roared (meow).

      Someone should buy her some Scope.

      At least the movie had a purpose and it was funny in its day.

      • Waffle

        Yes it did and was funny. But keep in mind that all the Trudeaupian speaking parts are written by Gerald Butts who had fantasies about being a fiction writer before he found a more lucrative vocation penning lines for politicos. So it is not really surprising that he would borrow a bit here and a bit there. But I was actually thinking of Katy Perry (eat your heart out, Krytia):

          ouch! I’m so behind the times. never saw Katy Perry (thanks for the vid. will watch it later) and heard this song maybe at the gym. The thing is, I wear earplugs when exercising, ’cause the music is so loud. wouldn’t even know who is singing what. As for Gerald Butts and Justine; they are still writing fiction.

    The Toronto Star is excited that a heavy emphasis will be on killing unborn babies around the world.

  • Marius K

    Sock’s model on Kelly, now this. The Liberal government have no idea how to deal with the White House and it shows. Forget any positive results on trade negotiations. The country is run by morons.

  • Millie_Woods

    I bet the Europeans are relieved that Canada is taking the place of the US as their most reliable North American ally.

    LOL. I can’t believe I typed that.

    • Linda1000

      You know they can rely on Justine and Macron to handle anything especially when Putin thinks it’s time for the pretty boys to be slapped down a bit.

      • favill

        Remember in Brave Heart when the pretty boy lover of the prince gives his opinion to the king….yeah…kinda like that.

    • Frances

      And they’ll expect Canada to pay up, as well.

      • Clink9

        Hey, we could keep it going for a day or two.

  • lzzrd

    Hmm….all logged int to say something, then thought better of it……..

  • Starlord

    Saying diversity is our strength for everything doesn’t make one a world leader. It makes us the KOA campground for people who will never call Canada home.

  • El Martyachi

    I used to think, wrongly, that Canadian foreign policy mattered. Aside from US relations it doesn’t, much, beyond alternately giving voters warm fuzzies or angering them. I’d now support a party that adopts a foreign policy centered around transgenderism before traditional national interest if it cost less.

  • New Centurion

    Billions on military spending eh? I can hear the champagne bottles being popped at Irving and Bombardier right now.

  • J. C.

    It may be time for President Trump to dust off that old concept of ‘manifest destiny’…

  • Spatchcocked

    A moron and a silly bitch…..both talking big.

    Those two are divorced from reality and think were so stupid we’d believe their posturing.

    • canminuteman

      Which is the moron and which is the silly bitch?

      • Alain

        Both labels apply to both.

  • Canadian Born

    Trump smart, Junior dumb and stupid. That Freeland broad is a ridiculous spoken person for Canada. She is as dumb as the moron that is running this country.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      She’s dumb as Justin, too.

  • Spatchcocked

    Someone tell those two twats Canada is a SMALL country…….we simply don’t matter in the great scheme of things……the Moron must be feeding his dope to the silly bitch.

    • favill

      To paraphrase Stalin….Canada? How many divisions does it have?

  • WalterBannon

    Chrystia Freeland is a douche

    • J. C.

      A retarded douche.

    • ontario john

      Careful, she has nazis in her family.

  • Surele Surele

    “For Canada that course must be the renewal, indeed the strengthening, of the postwar multilateral order,” she said.” And will she cry if nothing comes of it?

  • simus1

    OK. Whatever.
    She will probably need one of those brand new long range environmentally sensitive Bombardier Jets for her exclusive use to save the world, methinks.
