Protests planned for Bush, Clinton event in Canada

Canadian authorities braced for protests expected to take place near Vancouver, British Columbia, yesterday outside an event where former U.S. presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton were scheduled to appear. Amnesty International called on Canadian authorities to arrest Bush for “war crimes” while activists announced Occupy Wall Street-style protests of the economic summit in Surrey where the former presidents were scheduled to speak along with world finance experts. “We would prefer his home country try George W. Bush,” said Alex Neve, secretary-general of Amnesty International Canada. Neve said Bush should face trial for ordering the so-called enhanced interrogation, such as water boarding, of suspected terrorists.
