Berlin -- Yesterday, Maude Barlow, national chairperson of the Council of Canadians, challenged the Canada-European Union Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) and other trade deals in a panel discussion with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. During the panel, Chancellor Merkel presented her G7 presidency priorities.
Polls in Germany today show Dr. Angela Merkel will win the next election, a stunning result despite her steady hand in support of bailing out the deadbeat neighbours in Europe. She is a political phenomenon and the most powerful female in the world. She is a brilliant, but modest PhD in Quantum Chemistry, who, appropriately, leads the world's most modest superpower.
