1. (C) AMBASSADOR NICHOLSON ATTENDED DINNER HOSTED BY 
AMBASSADOR OF CANADA, WILFRED GUY LICARI, IHO OF CANADIAN 
ASSISTANT DEPUTY MINISTER PAUL DUBOIS ON NOVEMBER 5. 
DUBOIS TOLD THE AMBASSADOR THAT IT WAS VERY UNFORTUNATE 
THAT WHEN PRESIDENT BUSH SPOKE TO CONGRESS IN THE 
AFTERMATH OF THE SEPTEMBER 11 ATTACK, HE FAILED TO 
MENTION CANADA AMONG THOSE NATIONS PROVIDING ASSISTANCE 
TO THE UNITED STATES. 
 
2. (C) COMMENT:  DUBOIS STRESSED THAT CANADA IS FULLY 
BEHIND U.S. EFFORTS TO DESTROY TERRORISM, BUT DID WANT TO 
MAKE THE POINT THAT FAILING TO MENTION CANADA AS AN 
IMPORTANT PARTNER WAS AN OVERSIGHT WHICH WAS VIEWED AS A 
MAJOR SLIGHT. NICHOLSON
