The week's news at a glance.
Canadian Prime Minister Paul Martin kicked an anti-U.S. lawmaker, Carolyn Parrish, out of the ruling Liberal Party last week after she stomped on a George W. Bush doll on a TV comedy show. Members of the Conservative Party were outraged by the antics. Somebody like that, said Conservative leader John Reynolds, needs some real help. The squabble came days before Bush was to visit Canada, and Martin aides were reportedly worried that the controversy would make it harder to repair relations, already frayed over the war in Iraq and other issues. But Parrish said her critics were overreacting. Cmon guys, she said, its humor.
