Welcome to the Trudeau Doctrine: Canadian foreign policy seeks to preserve multilateral institutions and the Western alliance in the wake of America First.

The Trudeau doctrine will rest on three pillars. The first is military: Ms. Freeland promised major new investments following the release Wednesday of the government's defence policy review.

Second, the minister vowed Canada would spare no effort to preserve and strengthen the Western alliance, citing the deployment of Canadian troops to Latvia currently under way. "There can be no clearer sign that NATO and Article Five [which declares an attack on one NATO member to be an attack on all] are at the heart of Canada's national security policy,"

Third, Canada will aggressively pursue new trade agreements,

"The fact that our friend and ally has come to question the very worth of its mantle of global leadership puts into sharper focus the need for the rest of us to set our own clear and sovereign course," Ms. Freeland said. "For Canada, that course must be the renewal, indeed the strengthening, of the postwar multilateral order."

As the United States retreats from the world stage, others will take her place. Maybe not Canada but China is someone to put bets on. In the mean time, until we regain leadership in the White House, the states and cities are going to have to take up the slack. Hopefully this will be enough and the US will be able to take the world stage back in a year or 2020. Fingers crossed...

"Trudeau’s response to President Donald Trump’s spurning of NATO’s Article 5 is to “wait out” Trump’s presidency, and strengthen their relationships with the rest of their European and Asian allies.

Would have been anyways. Instead of using the opportunity to network and connect he is going to use it to push to the front and get his picture taken.

The Chinese would more than happy to move in if the USA leaves it's Qatar base.

Exactly what we want them to do, grow up and stop looking at the US for guidance (and money) constantly.
