    'I am very sad': Freeland walks as last-ditch Canada-EU trade talks collapse

    Last-ditch efforts to salvage Canada's trade deal with the European Union appear to have collapsed Friday, as International Trade Minister Chrystia Freeland walked out of talks with the regional government of Wallonia.

    The region has been blocking the deal that was supposed to be signed next week.

    "Canada worked really hard, and me personally, I worked very hard," she said in French, expressing Canada's disappointment — as well as her own — at this turn of events.

    "It's become evident for me, for Canada, that the European Union isn't capable now to have an international treaty even with a country that has very European values like Canada. And even with a country so nice, with a lot of patience like Canada."

    Let's hope there's no "last minute" deal in the morning tomorrow.

    Globalism is like a local spending referendum no matter how many times it is voted down they keep repackaging it with new "facts" altered cost estimates and benefit projections[BSf] until it passes.

    I would LOVE to believe that the tyranny euphemistically referred to as "globalism" is fizzling out.

    But let's be real and keep it in context, people. This is one trade deal. Don't make it out to be more than it is. Even the Brexit is a minor annoyance for the globalists in the wider scheme of what they have planned.

    It's naive and dangerous is to interpret any little defeat as a sign that globalism is on its knees and soon we'll be back to Freedom & Liberty for all.

    They have much bigger plans and are not going to quit. They also want you to think they are not a threat so it will be easier to achieve their ultimate goal of controlling everything and everyone.

    If you think "globalism is dying" then you took the bait and are a complete dupe.

    I agree many are duped, but they may be wise to remain hopeful, too. Despite the machinations of global conquest and endless insidious planning of the unscrupulous masters of deceit, the average person vastly outnumbers them. We should never forget that we hold all the power, and the most they ever do is try to convince us it's the other way around. This said, we ought to recognize that we are headed on a path that can not be avoided.

    Freeland departs Belgium after one more Canada-EU free trade deal meeting

    Freeland walked away from the talks on the verge of tears, saying the EU appeared incapable of signing the deal, and that she was going home.

    On Saturday, Freeland and Schulz addressed reporters after the meeting, but didn't take questions.

    A weary-looking Freeland nodded as Schulz said he was optimistic the EU would be able to solve its internal problems. At one point, Freeland appeared to stifle a sigh.

    "The problems on the table are European problems," Schulz said. "I checked once more the position of the Canadian government and I'm very optimistic that we can solve the problems that we have within the European Union."
