Prime Minister t rudeau fnds a way
to deal with t rump’s capriciousness
Canada relies on the United States for 70% of its trade, so to be at the
mercy of President Trump’s fckle decisions puts Canada in a vulnerable
position. But Justin Trudeau and his advisors developed a strategy that is
called the ‘doughnut approach’. It entails Canadian offcials travelling
throughout the United States and personally meeting mayors, governors
and members of Congress to discuss matters ranging from trade to the environment. This is the doughnut, and
the hole at the centre is the White House government. Cordial relations with Washington continue, but serious
business concerns skirt around the Trump administration.

Speaking Maori is cool
Less than six years ago, the Maori language was spoken
by only 3.7% of New Zealanders, but now it is making
a comeback. Maori people no longer feel ashamed of
speaking their language, and New Zealanders of European
descent are joining in. A popular radio host is learning
it and sharing the new vocabulary with his audience;
