Early Alert: G8 and G20 Summits in Canada

There will be G8 and G20 Summits held in Canada in June.

The G8 Summit will be in Huntsville (a part of the Muskoka region) and the G-20 will be held in Toronto.

Muskoka is a two hour drive north of Toronto.

The G20 Summit will be on June 26 and 27. The G8 Summit will run from June 25-27.

Does this mean the G-8 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States) will be dissing the larger G-20 group, since the summits overlap? Who knows, a bit strange.

Also of note, prior the summits. finance officials and central bankers from the G-20 will meet in Busan, South Korea.
