Martin is in a minority and to keep the support of the NDP and Bloc he needs to keep up an anti-american stance in regards to trade.
In an apparent shift from his conciliatory style in the past on Canada-U.S. relations, Harper said Wednesday that he would tell George W. Bush there are other markets for Canada's resources.
"We will have to put much higher emphasis in exploiting the growing demand of China, India and others for our natural resource sectors - options that did not exists in the 1980s (when free trade was negotiated.)"
