Former Canadian PM Calls US the Best Democracy on Earth 一 Claims Bush Was Most ‘Honorable’ Man to Serve It

Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney admitted that the United States of America is the best democracy on Earth — and he believes former President George H.W. Bush was the most honorable man to set foot in the Oval Office.

Mulroney served the Canadian people as prime minister from 1984 to 1993, working closely with Bush during his time as vice president and president as the two nations navigated the end of the Cold War.

The two became very close friends during their work together, especially while negotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which the two leaders championed

Mulroney was chosen to deliver a eulogy for Bush, honoring the United States and the president’s service during his term.

Watch:

“I believe that it will be said, that in the life of this country, the United States, which is in my opinion, the greatest democratic republic that God has ever placed on the face of this earth. I believe it will be said that no occupant of the Oval Office was more courageous, more principled, and more honorable than George Herbert Walker Bush.”

Mulroney shared several funny stories about his friendship with Bush, including a story from the first time he had a meeting with him as president. Bush attended a meeting with all of the heads of state involved in NATO.

During the meeting, the leader of Iceland gave a lengthy speech, about which, Bush told Mulroney, “the smaller the country, the longer the speech.”

Watch:

Mulroney completed his eulogy for his dear friend by pulling a quote Bush had used in conclusion of one of his famous letters.

Watch:

“There are wooden ships; there are sailing ships; there are ships that sail the sea. But the best ships are friendships — and may they always be.”

Clearly, Mulroney held Bush in the highest regards.
