Prime Minister dropped the ball on China

Chance missed at G20 summit

Dear editor,

Just last month Justin Trudeau was at the G20 summit in Japan. It was a booming success!

Trudeau was at his all-time best. Man, he was amazing! He demanded that China please, pretty please with sugar on it, be nicer to Canada’s farmers!

Get this! He even promised China that he will name his next child Xi if China will accept Canada’s canola and meat exports, and it worked!

Yes! China completely caved in! What a glorious victory! Justin is a hero! Okay…I fibbed.

No, it was a total bust! Actually, Justin sat right beside Mr. Jinping and didn’t say a word, not even “Weren’t the Calgary Flames outstanding this year?” No, not even “Isn’t this year flying by?”

He sat beside Mr. Jinping quietly. Man, what a great leader!

October 21, 2019 can’t come soon enough. Everyone needs to vote, vote, vote!

Thanks for letting me vent!

Larry Hiebert, Wetaskiwin
