Rex Murphy: Trudeau and Biden double down on efforts to destroy our economy
Here is a perfect symmetry. Trudeau wants to kill the oil and gas industry.
The Three Amigos?
I beg your pardon.
Is that an appropriate nomenclature for a conclave of the three finest minds in the statesmanship of our present-day world?
What ugly slur next — the Sombrero Summit? Enough of these careless and undignified representations.
Surely a meeting between leaders of the intellectual stamina of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and particularly that giant of international understanding and competence — a Churchill for our time — U.S.
What ugly slur next — the Sombrero Summit?
For Canadians the most significant outcome was the thoughtful response of President Biden to our prime minister’s concern over U.S. determination to give a most healthy direct subsidy to anyone in the United States willing to buy electric-powered vehicles. A subsidy of $12,000. This is not small change. In fact, it’s almost half of the cost of a government jet flying one way from Ottawa to, say, Tofino, B.C.
According to news reports, Trudeau was very concerned that this subsidy would kneecap the Canadian — he meant Ontarian — auto industry.
