Canada’s “$600-million” Extravaganza for G7

The Group of Seven (G7) is coming to Canada.                               
[Headline] “Trudeau defends $600-million price tag for G7 summit in Quebec town of La Malbaie”  May 24, 2018 by Giuseppe Valiante The Canadian Press
“The article stated: Aside from Trudeau, the leaders of the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Japan and Italy will gather June 8-9 for the 44th annual conference in La Malbaie, about 140 kilometres northeast of Quebec City.

Meanwhile the G7 finance ministers held a meeting earlier in luxurious Whistler B.C.

Note: There is a nice picture of Whistler’s grandeur in the article at link above.

Something called “integrating gender analysis” was also discussed at Whistler.
“Ministers highlighted the importance of better integrating gender analysis in policy development and implementation.”

There will be “guests” attending the big meeting later on in the week:
“The heads of the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the World Bank are also on the guest list.”

The people not on “the guest list,” and not invited, are the taxpayers of Canada that are paying for this gathering of the “greats,” of the political and establishment class. But hey, no doubt it will “create jobs” (A favourite political slogan.)  After all, these “dignitaries” have to be accommodated, and wined, and dined, and the security industry will be out in “force.” (No pun intended.) In fact it shows how much these politicians and other “guests” are loved when they need massive amounts of protection, wherever they park their posteriors. It has been reported that Iran and Syria will be discussed at this extravagantly expensive meeting.

“Heads of State and Government from Germany, France, the US, Canada, Japan, Italy and the UK will meet on Friday and Saturday at the invitation of the Canadian G7 Presidency. Foreign policy crises such as the conflict over North Korea's nuclear program, the war in Syria or the future of the US-terminated nuclear deal with Iran are on the agenda.” Sabine Kinkartz, 06.06.2018

Some of those countries attending fired missiles into Syria, [1] others reportedly were helping and arming the terrorists in Syria, [2] that they were supposed to be fighting, and of course some countries are reportedly helping the “rebels/jihadis” in Syria. Lots for them to talk about, or perhaps asking, “Who should we bomb next, and how are our rebels/terrorists that we arm and train doing”? Just kidding, of course, we know “our leaders” are honourable people. Don’t we?

“Last year the chiefs of staff of the US, Britain, France, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey met in Jordan; and a report by UAE's newspaper... also mentions the existence of a secret command center in Jordan which is staffed by military officials from 14 Western and Arab countries including Israel. This command center coordinates the operations of the rebels (jihadis) in southern Syria; while the operations of the jihadis in northern Syria are coordinated by similar command centers and bases in Turkey....” Nauman Sadiq, Asia Times Sep. 22, 2014.

Still, not to be outdone G7 member, Canada also gets a mention regarding what’s happening in Syria:
“Known and documented, Saudi Arabia has played a key strategic role in promoting and financing terrorism on behalf of Washington. Moreover, Saudi weapons purchases from the US and Canada are also being used to equip and arm various ‘opposition’ rebel groups in Syria including the ISIL and Al Nusrah.” Prof, Michel Chossudofsky, Global Research, March 02, 2016
Global Research 22 December 2015   

“ seems to me that everything the US and its so-called allies have done since the very beginning has been what I would call the ‘Kissingerian’ double-track diplomacy - pretending that they are against ISIS when they in fact they are arming ISIS,..”
William Mallinson, a former British diplomat and professor at Marconi University told RT.... Sepember 30, 2016.

“The [Syrian] district was taken over nearly six years ago by foreign-backed extremists, like Jaysh al Islam, Ahrar al Sham, and Al Nusra Front. The latter is an internationally outlawed terror group, but they all share the same murderous ideology, as well as the same Western covert sponsors in the American CIA, British MI6, French DGSE, and lavish Gulf Arab funding. It is these illegally armed insurgents who are holding the civilian population under siege in a reign of terror....
“In truth, there is indeed a siege in Syria. The entire Syrian nation is under siege – by criminal Western regimes and their equally criminal propaganda media, justifying war and aggression.”

In closing, one wonders, based on the evidence, when if ever, the countries and their leaders that have caused so much suffering and destruction around the world, will ever be held accountable for their actions?

“The evidence is overwhelming that illegal wars were planned on a number of countries. This has resulted in millions of deaths, millions of refugees. Soldiers dead or maimed after obeying the orders of the war criminals (past and present) that never fight in wars, but live in luxury off the blood of innocents. These ghouls of the earth need to be arrested and put on trial instead they are protected and given fancy titles to their names....”
