Statement by the Press Secretary
Postponement of the President's Trip to Canada
After consultations, the U.S. and Canadian governments have decided to postpone President Bush's May 5 State Visit to Ottawa. The postponement is due to the President's ongoing obligations to help the people of Iraq build a nation that is whole, free and at peace. President Bush and Prime Minister Chrtien look forward to accomplishing these goals that both share.
