Nicolas Sarkozy, host of next year’s G8, makes a declaration of bold specificity.
“I thank my Canadian friends for their contribution. I don’t know how it was organized,” he said in French. “I can tell you we are in a hotel where the comfort is extremely sufficient and extremely reasonable. I haven’t seen anything sumptuous. As for the French G8/G20, even though I can’t confirm the Canadian numbers, they will be ten times less. Exactly.”
