Martin pledges to mend Canada-U2 relations.
STRATHROY, ON (CS) – Speaking to reporters in Strathroy, Ontario today, Prime Minister Paul Martin promised to establish high-level diplomatic relations with the pop group, U2. Martin’s pledge follows a public dispute last year with U2-lead-singer Bono over Canada’s commitment to foreign aid spending. “My administration will build a stronger relationship with Canada’s loudest trading partner,” said Martin. “We will work toward a Canada-U2 pact covering such mutual issues as: how to dismantle an atomic bomb.”
