Freeland dancing to Trump's tune
There are at this moment two stories on view at the CBC News home page that are intimately related but don’t appear to be.
We’re all-in with the US led not-so-charming regime-change offensive against Venezuela. Why, Canadians would never countenance normal relations with any kind of dictatorship, would we? Unless of course they were a significant purchaser of our military hardware or something…

Chrystia: Make sure Donald understands we’re doing everything we can to isolate the evil dictator Maduro.
Mike: You can count on it, Chrystia! And if you can assure me that Canada is 100% on board with the coalition of the willing when we go in to restore democracy, maybe Donald will see his way clear to undo those pesky steel and aluminum tariffs.
Our hypocrisy knows no bounds.
