I can tell you that the Canadian intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been providing outstanding co-operation with our intelligence and law enforcement agencies as we work together to track down terrorists here in North America and put them out of commission.
I do want to try to put things in perspective today relative to the U.S.-Canada relationship. I would like to start by talking about how important this relationship is to the people of the United States.
I want you to know that despite what you might read at times in the newspapers or see on the television news we have actually been getting a lot of things done the last several months the U.S.-Canada relationship.
Canada and the United States are also working at the World Trade Organization and in our own hemisphere with negotiations for a Trade Area of the Americas to try to help countries create a positive climate for investment and trade.
When you think about the day-to-day positive impact on the lives of U.S. citizens there is no relationship that we have in the world that is more important than our relationship with Canada.
