Canada's Ambassador to the U.S. Gary Doer speaks to the Economic Club of Canada in Ottawa. (Photo: Sean Kilpatrick/CP)Doer also says Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump should be taken seriously because his support hovers around 30 per cent and his message is resonating with the party's base. Doer made the comments during a luncheon speech in Ottawa. Doer, whose time in Washington is set to end next year, says the Liberals will have to choose the best person for the job knowing the Republicans control Congress and the Democrats control the White House. Of course, he admits, all that could change with the U.S. election in 2016.
