Canada To Build A Wall Along U.S.-Canada Border, Will Ask Donald Trump To Pay For It


TORONTO, Canada (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau today announced that the Canadian government will soon build a wall along the U.S.-Canada border to keep out Americans  expected to flee once Donald Trump is elected president of the United States.

Today’s announcement is a dose of Trump’s own medicine.  When he launched his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, he announced that he will build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border to prevent Mexicans and others from entering the country.  Trump said that he will ask Mexico to pay for the cost of building the great wall.  Recently, he said he had just decided to make the wall 10 feet higher than his original plan.

Similary, Trudeau said that his government will bill the Trump administration for the cost of building the U.S. northern border.

As the probability of a Trump presidency becomes stronger by the day, many Americans have vowed to flee the U.S. for Canada and other countries in Europe.

The  handsome prime minister said that Americans can still enter Canada legally, with a valid visa.  However, he said only Americans from the red states will be required to secure visas.  Those from the blue states can enter Canada visa-free for a period of 90 days.

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Move over, AlDub. Make way for a new Pinoy (Filipino) rock star and idol.  His name is Justin Trudeau. Yes, the same Justin Trudeau who is prime minister of Canada.

The young world leader wowed Filipinos — women and men — with his youthful good looks during his Manila visit to attend the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.  He was mobbed by adoring fans wherever he went, and his photograph wearing the traditional Filipino men’s attire, the barong tagalog, put the Philippines’ top models to shame, literally.

One of the country’s top film production companies, Viva Films, has reportedly offered Trudeau an exclusive contract to appear in at least three Filipino movies in 2016 — opposite actress, TV host and presidential sister Kris Aquino.

The first film is about a woman (Aquino) who falls madly in love with a visiting foreigner who happens to be a married man (Trudeau).

The prime minister is reportedly seriously considering the offer.

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Tradition dictates that the spouse of the head of the host-state tour the spouses of guest-leaders during Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) events, but with President Aquino being a bachelor, his sisters had to fill in.

Ambassador Marciano Paynor Jr., director general of the APEC National Organizing Council, earlier told reporters that the president’s  sisters Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, Pinky Aquino-Abelleda, Viel Aquino-Dee and Kris Aquino will be giving the spouses of APEC leaders a historical tour of Intramuros during the Nov. 18-19 event.

Jardin said the tour, with the theme “A Walk Through Time,” would recreate a “living museum” scenario at every stop featuring actors, dancers and musicians.

However, at the last minute, Kris, an actress and talk show host, asked that she be excused from the spouses’ tour.

She asked her president brother to assign her instead  to be the personal chaperone of two of the most good-looking heads of state attending the Manila summit: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

Kris told The Adobo Chronicles that she is ‘very kilig’ (flirtatiously excited) just thinking about it. “Both gentlemen are so pogi (handsome), and it will be an honor and an extreme pleasure for me to be their tourist guide! I also want to do a one-on-one interview with them for my TV show.”

Kris’ three sisters are understandably not happy.
