Canada joins new German-France 'alliance' that doesn't include U.S.

How intolerable for all of us.

I remember Chrystia Freeland as a very intelligent, personable woman/Canadian who appeared on cable news.

OTTAWA Canada has formally joined a German-French coalition aimed at saving the international world order from destruction by various world dictators and autocrats and U.S. President Donald Trump.

The initiative is part of ongoing government efforts to shore up international co-operation at a time of waning American leadership and Trump's outspoken disdain of institutions created after the Second World War, including the G7, the World Trade Organization and the United Nations.


Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland offered Canada's support for the Alliance for Multilateralism during a meeting of G7 foreign ministers in Dinard, France earlier this month.

Japan also joined the new alliance during the meeting, and Freeland marked the moment on Twitter posting a photo of herself with Jean-Yves Le Drian, Heiko Mass and Taro Kono, her French, German and Japanese counterparts.

"Many of today's greatest challenges are global and they can only be solved when we work together. That is why Canada stands united with its German, French, and Japanese friends," Freeland said in the photo's caption.

2. This is good. What matters is that the alliances hold

So that Russia and other rogue states are kept in bounds. We can re-join the world community when we have a housebroken President and Congress Is once again in the hands of patriots.
