Americans Don't Want to be Seen Shaking Hands with Canadians

The Toronto Star is reporting that environment minister, Jim Prentice, was stood up at planned photo op with US environment secretary, Steven Chu. (Planned by Prentice's people but never approved by Chu's.)

Apparently, Prentice's people were trying to change the fake press release story by having a few chummy shots taken with his opposite number from south of the border. Chu, however, will only meet with Prentice and his people behind closed doors. He has no interest in being seen shaking the man's hand.

Remember when America was the bad guy of the globe and a Canada pin worn overseas could score you free beer?

Times are changing.
