More from the incorrigible twit who governs France. Recall that intelligent people have been pointing to Sarko’s six-month presidency of the European Union as the key to landing a Canada-EU trade deal. How’s that going? Inauspiciously. Bit of a rocky start, I’m afraid. Half a billion people in Europe and who does Sarko, our designated trade champion, pick a fight with on his first day on the job! The trade commissioner! Not that it actually matters, because whenever the French list their priorities for the French EU presidency, they keep forgetting to mention Canada.
