President Visits Ottawa

Listen to this story
Prime Minister Paul Martin says Canada and the U-S will work together to improve security between the two countries. The P-M made the comments after meeting with President Bush yesterday. President Bush received a boisterous ovation at a state dinner in his honor last night in Gatineau, Quebec. He praised Canada as a loyal and close friend. At least 10 anti-Bush demonstrators were arrested during brief clashes with riot police in Ottawa yesterday. Scuffles broke out as dozens of police in riot gear and gas masks used shields to hold back protesters. The clashes marred a day of otherwise peaceful protests. Reporter Karen Kelly talked to people on the streets of Ottawa about the visit and their hopes for U.S.-Canada relations.
