Deputy PM Freeland says 'safe restart' of economy won't happen any time soon
Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland says that a “safe restart” of the Canadian economy will take at least six to eight months.
Chrystia Freeland will no longer serve as foreign affairs minister, as the job will instead go to MP Francois-Philippe Champagne.
Freeland easily won a decisive victory in her downtown Toronto riding, with NDP candidate Melissa Jean-Baptiste Vajda trailing far behind. Many have expected this as Freeland has established herself as a high-profile candidate, while her opponents are relatively unknown.
Morneau, Freeland and others sent their kids to a Toronto private school with tuition costs in the tens of thousands, while the Liberals slam Scheer for not supporting public education.
Foreign Affairs minister Chrystia Freeland still calls U.S. tariffs on Canadian steel “illegal and unjust;” “frankly absurd”, but won’t say definitively if they would prevent her government from ratifying the new NAFTA agreement, or what the U.S. calls United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement.
