  1. That is quite the gang, that will cost us plenty and just another jaunt with a propaganda purpose. Lots of photo-ops with no sign of trouble. Inclusive, what a joke. Will you be strolling around the rape capital of the world? Can’t believe what this GG has lowered himself to do. It’s another disgusting , waste of money idea, suckling in people in key positions to help get the agenda going forward. It gets more crazy and disgusting everyday.

  2. Sweden is totally destroyed by Islamic immigration. He will have just a good idea of what is coming here!!!

  3. So Trudope wants stronger relations with the Fascist regime of Swedenstan

    No surprise from this anti-Semite govt.

    Heil Trudope.

  4. Please GG stay over there! You belong there!

  5. Don’t expect any and I mean any comments about the problem with ISLAM from the Liberals with this trip

  6. He used to be an honest and sincere man but now he is just another Trudeau puppet.

  7. Waste of time. It will all come back positive. How else would it be reported

  8. Hope he get a view of Canada’s Muslim hord in the near future that his buddy Trudeau is bringing to us !

  9. No women allowed on this trip !

  10. Well, just make sure you have lots of police for protection and don’t go to the area that police are afraid to go in. Grow a beard may help, bullet proof vest would be good advice too.

  11. You are a fool old man, you will find out how inclusive they are if you go to the wrong place.

  12. Canada is searching for who to align with… Will it be Europe? Will it be Iran? Will we be wandering in the desert….?

  13. I hope he visits some of the Muslim “no go zones”, where the police refuse to go. Inclusive is not what I would call it.
