Prime Minister Harper: US Doesn't Pay Enough Attention to Canada

By    |   Tuesday, 20 Nov 2012 04:20 PM

The United States doesn’t pay enough attention to Canada because the squeaky wheel gets the oil in Washington “and we’re not the squeaky wheel,’’ Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said this week.

The remark came during his meeting with the Canadian American Business Council on Monday, reports The Globe and Mail newspaper.

“My only complaint about the United States — and every Canadian will say this, but it’s just the way it is — is we always like to have more attention in the United States,” Hunter told Maryscott Greenwood, the council’s senior U.S. adviser.

“We certainly pay a lot of attention to you; you sometimes don’t pay enough attention to us.”

U.S. Ambassador to Canada David Jacobson said later that President Barack Obama’s administration does “care very much what Canada thinks.”

“I think that probably most every country in the world wishes the United States paid a little bit more attention to them,” Mr. Jacobson said.

Earlier this year, a blistering essay titled “How Obama Lost Canada” written by two Canadians, was published in the foreign policy journal Foreign Affairs.

Among its complaints, the Globe and Mail said, was the United States’ delay of the Keystone pipeline project.

Hunter said he “completely disagreed” that Obama had lost Canada.
