GUEST,Geordie BS: Are Americans 'insular'? (114* d) RE: BS: Are Americans 'insular'? 13 May 02

On The morning of the seventeenth when asked by Cdn reporters if he had sent official condolences to the people of Canada, Mr. Bush refused to answer the question. There was a great deal of consternation in Canada over the fact that we lost four soldiers and Mr. Bush appeared to be indifferent. It was not an item on American news reports nor did it seem be of much concern in America, I just felt, as a Canadian that we had been taken for granted and that our loss was not appreciated. Being a small country, population wise, we felt the loss of these soldiers deeply. Two of them come from the Province in which I live and the grief felt here was considerable, as I am sure you can imagine. I believe that people felt we had been ignored...and we were. Sad but true.
