G7 leaders discuss trade, N.Korea

Protesters took to the streets of Quebec City on Friday, June 8, for a "day of disruption" to demonstrate against the G7 conference taking place near the city.

Quebec City streets tranquil up till now but gearing for G7 protesters.

Police made at least two arrests.

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 previous year when it hosted the G20 finance ministers and central bank governors' meeting to promote private investment in Africa, including in infrastructure. She said that she would stay open with barricades and her only worry is night time.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked Thursday in Saguenay, Que., if he had a message for protesters in Quebec City. However, police was present to keep vigil on the protestors.

The city and the province will reimburse citizens and merchants for broken windows and other damages sustained due to vandalism during the protests, Quebec City Mayor Regis Labeaume said. "And we will ensure that protesters and citizens and G7 participants are safe".

They said the fortified enclosure and security checkpoints would be intimidating to protesters, and noted that the site was some distance away from where the leaders will be meeting. "If it doesn't happen, we come out even better!"

The protests, involving anarchists, anti-capitalists and environmentalists, were largely peaceful, but there was some trouble and tension between police.

After the family photo, German Chancellor Angela Merkel lagged behind to briefly talk with Trump.

"We will not condemn acts that have not been committed", she said.

About 10,000 civil servants who work in buildings in and around Quebec's legislature have been given Thursday afternoon off as well as all day Friday in anticipation of the discord.

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".

Frederique Gendron, assistant manager of soap store Lush, said that after speaking with the company's Canadian headquarters in Vancouver, they chose to barricade the store and close it for the safety of the employees. "It's just easier to board up the store".
