I have my doubts with Chrystia Freeland, politics, the move is below is really premature. She presented in media as sort heroine I have my doubt about status. She has taken alot light out room but what see accomplished the new NAFTA.  I no truble with trade, 40 million that we speclizae in some fields.  We have simply not do the domestic base 350 millions people that will buy goods on the scale.  Here how it works the more sell to consumers  to  more profit you get, then money invest into research and marketing.   Do that for 100 rounds, consider the gap one country that sell earn a profit to put into research and marketing.  20 million gaps between the 2 companies will end up I going out a profit because the gap in the arms race in development that money the company with more will do more research in every round the tech race proportionally favors the larger company.  So we need trade 30 millons vs 300 million that gap is huge.  Thats what puzzles their an focus on us market, I understand can will have a certain realtionship with the US but close China off to trade in poor policy.  1. they huge market of consumers, we have here in Canada or US mature markets, we individuaol that load down debt and purchasing down goes down for an individual.  The importance fresh market 1 billion people relatively unconjured with debt.   Its fresh market, enough the general population in North America may not realize the importance of China but every capitalist in Canada should in the streets because they were the money money is.  And remember Chinnse grow is ogranic while our grow it based on debt.  I really troubled that we tied to a very large market of the US but its a mature market. The growth centre is now Asia and tie off China market is counter productive, in the end.   

"cabinet shuffle may well be coming in the next couple of months in Ottawa, but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seems to have already jumped the gun and created a new job for one of his ministers. Chrystia Freeland, already Canada's foreign affairs minister, is increasingly looking like the unofficial deputy prime minister to Trudeau"

I believe that Trump understands this or his staff are aware the dynamics what is the future holds they want to deal  this potential threat with war.  Every day China grows economically stronger and sanctions will not work at this stage.

Freeland is a dangerous Canadian neocon with Liberal window-dressing and powerful international friends. Her 'guru' on all things economic is Larry Summers who helped Clinton repeal  Glass Steagall and so let loose the bankster-gangster masters of the universe to eat their fill backed and bankrolled by the federal treasury.  So no surprise she sold us down the river to the Americans on USMCA. She can talk left and think right as required. Even the NDP likes her. Perfect for Canadian politics. But it's no fault of hers her grandfather was a Nazi.  She'll go a long way, just you wait and see.

Freeland is the one-time critic of the plutocrats who has devolved into their humble servant. Her book, "Plutocrats", turns out to be nonsense, given her political re-positioning, post-election.

I know this is a very old comment, but did you read her book?  Or did anyone here?  I have not.  I have heard that it is just her stories about going to all the plutocrat parties, and being a plutocrat groupie.

But I have not read it.

Regarding Freeland and her grandfather, unfortunately yet again. 

Despite a fairly easy distinction to be made (and it has been made MANY times before) there are continued attempts by some to whitewash any connection between Freeland and her Nazi grandfather's history.

In easy point form, even the hard-of-thinking might comprehend:

1)Chrystia Freeland should not, and cannot, be held accountable for her grandfather's Nazi background, How could she, she wasn't even born. Shared genes with anyone, no matter how vile the relative, should in no way be considered a condemnation of a non-involved party. This should be obviously true to anyone.

2)HOWEVER, if someone, whether a relative or not, knowingly, as Freeland has done:

a)holds him up as a model of political wisdom

b)holds him up as a model of Ukrainian values.

c)while knowing his past for at least 20 years creates and repeatedly touts a false backstory of victimhood a refugee escaping from both Stalin and Hitler, to cover his Nazi past. (A claim that still exists on her Liberal site as of this posting)

d)claims the truth iabout his past is a Russian fabrication--"disinformation". 

e)was, at athe least, content to have Trudeau to expel 4 Russian embassy personel for daring to tell the truth about her grandfather, again cited as "Russian disinformation".

Such actons by someone, whether a relation or not, suggests a sympathy with and affinity for Chomiak's  disposition, This, coupled with the undeniable dishonesty ought,  as Clemenhaga suggests, make her unfit for office.

Additionally, it is hardly the only time the Trudeau/Freeland's indispensible weaponized meme, "Russian disinformation", was used to bury unpleasant truths about Ukrainian Nazis in Canada. Merely using the term functions as a dog whistle that silences all "respectable" oppostion--anyone who dissents is treated as a Russian or Russian dupe:

Canadian government comes to the defence of Nazi SS and Nazi collaborators but why?

DAVID PUGLIESE, OTTAWA CITIZEN Updated: May 17, 2018

....As my Postmedia colleague Marie-Danielle Smith discovered, the Russian tweet sent bureaucrats at Global Affairs Canada into overdrive as they tried to defend the SS unit and Ukrainian Nazi collaborators. Documents she received through the Access to Information law show government officials were under a lot of pressure from the “Centre” (the Privy Council Office and the Prime Minister’s Office) to counter the news about the monuments to Nazi collaborators. The bureaucrats came up with a strategy. The would label the tweet as “disinformation” and they came up with a plan to spread the word to the news media as part of their efforts to defend Ukraine’s Nazi collaborators...

British Deep State Of Canada Caught Steering Venezuelan Coup

Posted on January 30, 2019  …by Matthew J.L Ehret,  for VT Canada

Who is the Canadian International Council?

Does anyone believe that Justin Trudeau has anything to do with the leadership role Canada has played in the coups of Honduras and now Venezuela?

If in fact it can be demonstrated that Trudeau´s government has violated its political program, that it has violated its obligations to the UN Charter and to the UN Covenant of Indigenous Rights, is this a coup against the rule of law in Canada?

When LaRouchites denounce "American imperialism", they don't mean the same thing that you do.

Where the original American doctrine of Manifest Destiny expounded by William Gilpin, Secretary of State Seward and Charles Sumner was driven by the uplifting of humanity to ever higher states of dignity, freedom and standards of living-  those perverse versions poisoned by “hereditary principles” of kings-subject/master-slave relationships which even TODAY contaminate the world’s comprehension of the term had the opposite effect of causing ever greater suppression of freedom, creative thought, and dignity in all those who came in contact with it.

https://tinyurl.com/y9t2grth

TL/DR: The original noble aims of Manifest Destiny were perverted by the evil British(they being the recurring snake-in-paradise of Larouchian paranoia), who used their puppets John A. MacDonald and the Confederacy to make the whole enterprise into one of racism and genocide. But the Silk Road Initiative is the continuation of the original American dream, and so Canada should join with the US in hooking up with that.

As usual with LaRouche, there is a kernel of truth buried in all that(both the Brits and their Canadian minions played footsie with the Confederacy, for entirely ignoble reasons), but I'm sure most clear-headed people would agree that it's a pretty bizarre template for analyzing geopolitics in the 21st Century.

Evan Dyer: Ottawa Braced For Russian Retaliation After Barring State Media From Lima Group Talks

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/venezuela-russia-canada-media-lima-grou...

"Canadian officials [Freeland] decided on short notice to deny accreditation to all Russian and Venezuelan state media outlets planning to attend an international conference in Ottawa this winter - even though they knew the action likely would provoke retaliation against Canadian media. The reasons don't seem to have been explained to them.

GAC's Richard Walker wrote to his collleagues the morning of Feb 4, 'Sputnik reporter from Uruguay is here and is very upset. He flew in Saturday night and wants an official reason why he can't attend. The guy seems honest.' Sputnik's reporter Rafael Rey had travelled from his network's South American bureau in Montevideo, Uruguay only to learn that his trip was in vain. He wrote Walker later that morning to ask for the reasons for his rejection. 'They're asking me for that in Moscow. Can you send me what [you] can tell me about Freeland and Sputnik?,' Rey wrote, referring to Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland.

From Montevideo, Rey told CBC News that he was annoyed with Canadian officials for waiting until he was in Canada to tell him he wouldn't be allowed to cover the event. Rey said he flew from Montivideo to Miami, then to Philadelphia, then to Ottawa. 'I got to my hotel in Ottawa, checked the email and found out they didn't give me the accreditation,' he said. 'They say it was because there were some troubles, some differences in the past between Sputnik and Canada, Chrystia Freeland, about Ukraine, and that was the reason they didn't want Sputnik in the meeting.' Rey said his bureau is focused on the Americas and doesn't cover Ukraine.

The Press Gallery said it would have liked to see the government handle matters differently. 'Canada should give an example of what a free press is, if we want to boast to ourselves about a free press,' said Gallery president Pierre-Vinat Foisy. For us, that one of our members is being denied, and we don't know the basis for that denial is really, really problematic.' TASS has a permanent correspondent in Ottawa who has long been a member of the Press Gallery. Foisy said there have been no complaints about the correspondent and the Gallery is satisfied that TASS meets the criteria for accreditation..."

Impressive investigative piece this, from our own 'state run' CBC,  for a change. Freeland's embarrassing and spiteful  'Global Affairs' foreign media practices, not so much.

Under Freeland’s tenure, Canada has drifted so far from Trudeau’s optimistic 2015 campaign that Liberal foreign policy is virtually indistinguishable from the Conservative’s: take a hard line on Russia and Iran, undermine the Venezuelan government, and do not negotiate with China. For Freeland the U.S. is the “indispensable power” without which Canada would apparently be lost.
