Despite his success on the mad-cow front, Martin walked away empty-handed in an attempt to sell Bush on a political project dear to him.

The prime minister hoped to gain support from Bush for his proposed L-20 - a new organization of world leaders that would gather the G-8 countries and the leaders of about 12 other emerging economic powers like India, China, Brazil and South Korea.

Martin sees the concept as a potential political legacy for him and an effective way to establish global protocols on things like security and health emergencies like SARS.

But Bush remained skeptical.
Good to know the beef ban is coming to an end. And most Canadians were against Bush coming to Canada. How can they expect America to treat Canada better if they aren't even willing to have the President visit? :yuck:

I have no idea what this is about. What better way for communicating? I would think that the protests were about his decisions (beef, Iraq, shield...) in the last few years, not against him visiting.
