Tryin' To Throw Your Arms Around The World

OttawaAs if Paul Martin's troubles couldn't get any worse, he's now angered Bono. In an interview that airs this morning on CBC Radio's "The House", the singer blasts Martin for reneging on a promise to reach a foreign aid goal of 0.7% of GDP.

"We were looking for Canada to lead rather than be a laggard...It's not just about me being a nuisance, this is about Canada's identity in the world...This is what's upsetting about this, is it feels like business as usual."

Accusing Martin of trying to "hold up history," Bono wants us to call the Prime Minister's Office to complain. That number, if you don't already have it on speed dial, is 613.992.4211.

One love, One blood, One life, You got to do what you should.
