Syl­vain Fabi: Cana­dian High Com­mis­sioner to Ja­maica

Jamaica Gleaner - - UNITED STATES ELECTIONS 2016 -

“I will go back to Ja­maica’s elec­tion and how it was con­ducted, which, from the point of view of all Ja­maican and for­eign ob­servers, was con­ducted very well.

“Does Ja­maica have any lessons to re­ceive from an elec­tion held in the US or in Canada? I’m not sure, I would be hard-pressed to say.

“The US elec­tions are like the Ja­maican elec­tions. Peo­ple are free to vote and peo­ple are go­ing to cast their votes, and the elec­tion is go­ing to be the re­sult of what peo­ple voted.

“I think that with a Clin­ton pres­i­dency, the re­la­tion­ship with Ja­maica would be sim­i­lar to what it is un­der the cur­rent Barack Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“Un­der the Democrats, I think his­tor­i­cally the US re­la­tion­ship with Ja­maica has been in­ter­est­ing.

“Un­der Mr Trump, there is a lot of con­cern about his for­eign pol­icy so it’s harder to tell.”
