Sky will not fall due to Trump’s presidency
The new year is in and too many Canadians are worried and frightened of what 2017 will bring us, once the u.s. has sworn in its new president on Jan. 20.
There is so much scare and fear mongering spread around here in Canada by politicians, strategists, columnists, economists and other “know-it-alls.” it’s unbelievable! (Well, they do make a living from that.)
as for myself, i look at this “Trump effect” on Canada like this: The sky will not come crashing down on us. life, work, trade, the economy and Canada-u.s relations will continue just the same – for good or bad – as they did before.
i believe Canada, our government and its ministers will achieve a good and sensible relationship with this new u.s. administration as we had in the past – no doubt about it!
We are known to be a smart country. Canadians must shift from cynicism to optimism, from negative to positive, from illusions to reality, and from fear to faith.
as Canadians we must believe in our country and most of all in ourselves. This in turn will make us feel good, strong and fearless.
so have a fearless new year! Karl Habla, Timmins
