As a Canadian, I do not recall a sitting Canadian Prime Minister ever declining a meeting with the US President.

This is probably the first time where a visit with the President of the United States would actually cause real harm.  Both personally and professionally.

As an American, I do not recall a sitting American President ever inviting another leader to a summit without first clearing schedules, nor during an international health crisis, nor announcing unilaterally.

Seriously, it's a f*cking shiatshow over there.

Based on polling, I think he was more popular than any modern Canadian politician.

Trudeau is known to be 6'2" tall. Trump claims to be 6'3". The picture in the article clearly shows Trump is shorter than Trudeau.

It's a puzzler.

Donnie is not and has never been a president.  If real leaders treat him that way, good.

Justin is deliberately being taller just to make Trump look bad/weak.

Also, refusing the "invitation" is A Good Thing both personally for the Trudeau family and ALL our elected M.P.'s plus their staffs, AND symbolically.

I dunno if sitting down with Mister Handsome was going to be a good bet, to begin with, Donnie. His smile versus your wattle wouldn't do you any favors.

Why sit down with any President in the middle of the months running up to an election? It's quite possible that the next Administration is going to change, and thus your work will be in vain. Plus...

The changes to NAFTA are going to be terrific for Mexico.  It's still less expensive for corporations to move their plants back to the US or open new ones in the US, so some of Mexico's workers are looking at simply making 8 times what they were making when they could already easily support a family.
Of course there won't be a tarriff if a car is made in Mexico, but you can sure bet that this 8 times the cost of living increase will be passed along to the consumer.
Trudeau should want to be there when president Obrador becomes the next in a long line of world leaders who have completely owned our president in the past 3 years.  God Bless Donald Trump.

Just another sign of how far we've fallen.  Pretty soon, Americans will be like old Brits sitting around their local pub, The Queen Victoria, talking about the glory days.

I wonder what our post-Imperial has-been bar would be named? Probably "The Exceptional."

Perhaps an accusational confession like:

Because Trump is a creep and people don't want him near their daughters.

I'm a little surprised he hasn't tried to accuse Obama of wearing black face. Or possibly of wearing "white face", and thinking that's the height of cutting wit.

ah not true. highly farking representative though!

the US map has 3 orders of magnitude more data points

the vast vast majority of those points contain the lowest number of cases for that dot size

the smallest point, perhaps representing a few cases, is not remotely to the same scale of the larger circles used to represent the handful of Canadian data points

if Canada had more resolution in its data, it could be made to look a lot more bloody

Yup, the map sucks, but the point is clear.
I'm glad to keep our border closed and leaders geographically distant for now.

I'm just glad this isn't a zombie outbreak, although given how porous our border is still, we're always poised on a knife's edge up here in Canada, because all it takes is one asshole super-spreader, and the US side of the map is statistically rife with them.

Safe...which is you saying "As long as it stays the way it stays, nobody goes there and it avoids being an integrated population.  The entire NAFTA deal as it relates to Canada is about dairy farming.

Not really. Rural Canada has been pretty safe. You'd just see those dots move to the provincial capitals / biggest cities. A couple of them might split in two.
