Despite the fact that dozens of Canadians lost their lives there, the prime minister is making excuses for not visiting the mass grave that was the World Trade Center. His excuse: New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said they're too busy cleaning up. That didn't stop the British prime minister or the French president. Did Jean actually think that leaving Washington directly for a political fundraising dinner in Toronto was more pressing? Anyone remember when the PM missed the 1999 funeral of Jordan's King Hussein? His excuse: couldn't get a flight.
