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.
