MONTEBELLO, Quebec ? President Bush, tending to relations with two border nations, sought Monday to invigorate his partnership with like-minded leaders of Canada and Mexico.

Bush arrived by mid-afternoon in the Canadian countryside, where he will promote North American integration with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Mexican President Felipe Calderon. Police in riot gear pushed back dozens of protesters marching just outside the gate of the resort compound, where a few hundred people gathered in demonstration.

“I heard it’s nothing,” Harper said, dismissing the protests as Bush arrived at the posh Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello. Bush ducked a question about it and just smiled.

The two-day summit is the third of its kind during Bush’s presidency, and each one has been meant to bolster a compact ? dubbed the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America ? that serves as a way for the nations to team up on health, security and commerce.

The partnership of the countries is a framework for working out problems ? not a deal that was ever intended to produce dramatic announcements. In turn, the White House sought to lower expectations that something bold would emerge from the meetings.

“I don’t expect any major announcements,” Bush spokesman Gordon Johndroe said. “I think it’s a continuance of discussions that we have regularly with our two closest neighbors.”

For Bush, the event also allows him to show that he does not take his neighbors for granted; they are both vital trading partners and energy providers for the U.S.

“The message for Canada and Mexico is that despite the ongoing emphasis on Iraq and terrorism in U.S. foreign policy … the U.S. is investing time and attention on relationships with our own region,” said Chris Sands, a scholar of North American studies and senior associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

    Harper, Bush, and Calderon are meeting to effect treason on each of their respective nations. These meetings are going on OUTSIDE the U.S. Congress, Canadian Parliament, and Mexican Congress. No debate. Just a bunch of corporate leaders dissolving national sovereignty . . . I hope those protestors riot up there in Ottawa!

    Gosh, Bush’s massive popularity and all the honesty and openness about this deal should make it an easy sell to the trusting American public.
