As George W. Bushâ€™s St. Patrickâ€™s Day visit to Alberta draws near, the federal government is facing pressure from activists and human rights lawyers to bar the former U.S. president from the country or prosecute him for war crimes and crimes against humanity once he steps on Canadian soil.
Lemieux is hopeful that Bush will eventually be prosecuted. â€śDo I think that itâ€™s going to happen very soon? No,â€ť she says. â€śBut I think that itâ€™s very important that we keep the pressure upâ€¦. We have to make it clear that thereâ€™s accountability.â€ť
