Academics and intellectuals, please abstain

Our Prime Minister has revamped his cabinet in an effort to adapt to the incoming Trump administration.  In the process, he replaced his foreign affairs minister, a respected academician and efficient climate change negociator and his immagration minister who organized the Syrian refugees programs, by business persons who have demonstrated some affinities with some Trump nominees.

I can understand his motivations but I fear that he will become subservient to herr Trump.  Trudeau, the father, had freed us of U.S. shackles, I guess Trudeau, the son, will, albeit reluctantly, return us to those shackles.  It would confirm rule number one under Trump:”Say what I want to hear…or else!”
