Bush* Snubs Cretien in Asia

Chilly relationship continues at APEC summit

BANGKOK - He scratched at the door, but White House officials weren't letting Prime Minister Jean Chrtien in today.

The prime minister has requested a formal one-on-one meeting with U.S. President George W. Bush during the two-day APEC summit here this week - but the demand so far has met with nothing more than silence.

Chrtien and Bush were expected to bump into each other several times during the summit of 21 world leaders, but U.S. officials shrugged off a Canadian request for a formal bilateral meeting between the men, who have never had a close personal relationship.


Bush has yet to visit Canada in the almost three years since he was sworn in as president.
