Trudeau aiming to make gender equality a major theme when Canada hosts G7 summit

The Liberal government is planning to make gender equality a major theme of its G7 presidency, which includes hosting the summit in La Malbaie, Que.

That would include putting the whole event through gender-based analysis, which involves thinking about how a certain policy might affect men and women, or boys and girls, in different ways, along with taking age, income, culture, ethnicity and other intersecting factors into account.

Germany steps up criticism of Donald Trump

Mrs Merkel, speaking at a conference on sustainable development in Berlin, reinforced Germany’s commitment to tackling climate change and said it was vital not to varnish over differences with allies.

Mrs Merkel did not specifically mention Mr Trump but quoted a 1963 speech by former President John F. Kennedy in Frankfurt, where he told the audience “those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.”

Trump acted like a ‘loud and tacky drunk tourist who steps on others without realizing’ during his meetings with foreign allies, claims State Department official

‘When it comes to diplomacy, President Trump is a drunk tourist,’ the State Department official told the Daily Beast. ‘Loud and tacky, shoving his way around the dance floor. He steps on others without realizing it. It’s ineffectual.’

The official, who has not been named, said that the United States should be ‘out front’ when it comes the Paris Agreement.

Not named because he doesn’t exist.
