BONO SLAMS CANADIAN PM

Well, the Prime Minister of Canada…

BONO has attacked the PRIME MINISTER of Canada for not keeping foreign aid promises.

The U2 singer said he was “bewildered” by Paul Martin, claiming he had failed to increase Canada’s aid contributions to the equivalent of 0.7 per-cent of its gross national product, as he had previously promised.

“We were looking for Canada to lead rather than be a laggard,” said Bono in a CBC radio interview. “This is no time to just turn inward. I know there are problems here at home. But don’t lose your focus, Prime Minister, on how history will remember this moment.”

The singer also read out a phone number for Martin’s office on air and encouraged listeners to ring in and complain. The Canadian leader is currently fighting to save his minority government following a financial scandal, BBC News reports.
