Tensions between Trump, allies subside at G7 summit

Preparations Ahead Of The Group of Seven Leaders' Summit

The mostly peaceful demonstrations in Quebec City on Thursday saw thousands of protesters took to the streets, with a heavy police presence deployed in the area ahead of the summit.

A group of protesters set fire to couches at the entrance to Highway 440, which leads from Quebec City to La Malbaie, where the G7 summit is taking place.

Police declared an early morning anti-G7 protest illegal a few minutes after it began this morning in a Quebec City suburb.

Martin also hoped that the G7 leaders will discuss other pressing issues, such as climate change, gender equality, and the Compact for Africa initiated by Germany a year ago when it hosted the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors' meeting to promote private investment in Africa, including in infrastructure.

"It's been a while since I wanted to cut my hair", she said, as her brown locks fell to the concrete.

Nicole Filion, with Quebec's league for civil liberties, said she worries about the possibility of mass arrests, the conditions of detainees inside the temporary jails, and the potential misuse of crowd-control weapons by police, such as rubber-ball blast grenades. Quebec City's significant district looked deserted as though business owners were devising for a microscopic hurricane to blow through the cobblestone streets and many stores were barricaded with plywood expecting the anti G7 protests. It's impossible to predict how (protesters) will act and how police will react.

It doesn´t protect you from suicide", Jodi Gold, director of the Gold Center for Mind Health and Wellness, said on CNN. Someone else continued: "I can't imagine what his family and immediate close friends are experiencing at this moment".

"It must obviously be done with respect and, above all, security. If it doesn't happen, we come out even better!"

Earlier on Thursday, the first of a series of demonstrations and protests kicked off peacefully in the provincial capital.

An actor wearing a papier-mache mask of Donald Trump wielded a feather duster, while a likeness of Justin Trudeau carved a turkey next to laundry-folding Angela Merkel.

"We aren't talking enough about Africa", said Martin, who as Canadian finance minister proposed the idea of a G20 in 1999 with the support of then U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers.

Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, anticipated in his Twitter account that during the meeting, likely to end tomorrow at the mentioned city of the regional county of Charlevoix, "together will approach some of the world's most pressing challenges".
