CYA from the Canadian Embassy

I don’t believe this for a minute: …the Canadian Embassy in Washington released a statement essentially backing up the Obama camp’s version of the meeting between adviser Austan Goolsbee and officials at the Canadian consulate in Chicago.

“There was no intention to convey, in any way, that Senator Obama and his campaign team were taking a different position in public from views expressed in private, including about NAFTA,” the embassy statement said. “We deeply regret any inference that may have been drawn to that effect.”.

What I believe is this – the Canadian government doesn’t want to be involved in a dust-up of this nature with a possible future president of the United States. The real story has yet to be told.
