If Canada Has To Have A G7 Partner That Is Autocratic, Why Not Make It Russia Rather Than

You Guessed It – America’s Donald Trump

Posted June 13th, 2018 by Doug Draper, Niagara At Large

Every once in a while we at Niagara At Large like to share with our readers a letter-to-the-editor that grabbed us while reading the daily newspapers, something we also still do around here – read newspapers, as much as many have made the mistake of giving up on them.

If we have to have an autocrat in the G7, why not Russia’s Putin instead of America’s Trump?

The following letter caught our attention in the Monday, June 12th edition of The Globe and Mail, and appeared in the wake of the ugly conduct of America’s reality TV show president, Donald Trump at the recent G7 Summit meeting in Quebec.

It was written by Michael Armstrong from Niagara Falls, Ontario, right here in our own region, and, believe it or not, when I shared it with a gathering of some of my American friends in Cape Cod, Massachusetts this June 13th, they all thought it pinned the tail on the donkey too.

Here it is –

‘U.S. President Donald Trump wants Russia invited back to the G7.Fine: Let Russia replace America in the G7. That way, at least the lone autocrat there won’t be one withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement.’

In Putin, we at Niagara At Large would add, there would be someone much intelligent sitting at the table too.
