Bush pressured Martin over missile plan: report

U.S. President George W. Bush strongly pressed Prime Minister Paul Martin to support the missile defence program during his recent visit to Ottawa, according to a report in the Washington Post.
The newspaper cites a “top Canadian official who attended the meeting between Bush and Martin” as saying Bush brought up the subject on Nov. 30 despite assurances that he wouldn’t do so from Secretary of State Colin Powell and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice.
The official said Bush “leaned across the table and said, ‘I’m not taking this position, but some future president is going to say, “Why are we paying to defend Canada?”‘”
