What’s wrong with Bush’s “dissing” of Canada?

by Yule Heibel on April 15, 2003

Read this article in today’s Globe & Mail (Toronto) to learn why “in cancelling his [scheduled for May 5 to Ottawa] visit, Mr. Bush is not just dissing Canada. He’s also implicitly negating the importance of his own economy. He’s once again telling the world — as he did by imposing tariffs on European steel, by allowing the Canada-U.S. lumber dispute to fester, by condoning the protectionist U.S. Farm Bill and by setting the stage for $1-trillion in U.S. deficits over the next few years — that sound economic policy is not terribly important to him.”
