In April, Rice canceled a visit to Canada as a diplomatic rebuke for its decision not to participate in the Bush administration's anti-missile defense system.

In a telephone conversation with President Bush on Oct. 14, Martin rejected the U.S. leader's request to negotiate the tariff issue, saying Canada "would not negotiate a win," according to Martin's office.
