Canada says no to missile defense

On January 9th, I posted this article from the CBC in which US ambassador Paul Cellucci claimed that the Canadians were on board for joining in the US missile defense plan. As I stated then, the Canadians were amazed to learn that they had joined the plan considering it hadn't even been debated in parliament at that point. Today, Paul Martin announced that his country would have no part in the missile defense strategy. This is a big loss for Bush and Cellucci. Read the complete story here. It's interesting that Canada made the announcement on the same day that Bush met with Putin, almost guaranteeing that the story would be buried on page three.
