Five things we imagine were said during last week’s private meeting between Gov. Jay Inslee and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
1 Inslee: “This is the most exciting visit Washington has had from a Canadian dude named Justin since Bieber rocked the Tacoma Dome in 2012.”
Never miss a local story.
2 Trudeau: “Just a heads up, we plan to build a border wall and have the U.S. pay for it. Nothing personal. There will be a nice tunnel for Washingtonians.”
3 Inslee: “We’re thrilled you’re gonna legalize weed next year. But have you thought about ditching the maple leaf as your national symbol?”
4 Trudeau: “Sure, I can see you running for president in 2020. You have the kind of Royal Mountie, Dudley-Do-Right aura that nations fall in love with.”
5 Inslee: “Here’s a crazy thought: Let’s trade Vancouvers! We’ll throw in Camas and Washougal for good measure.”
