Pierre Pettigrew infuriated many developing countries in Cancun this month. Canada's trade minister chaired a working group on the sensitive “Singapore issues” that were not supposed to dominate this WTO Ministerial. He became the quarterback driving for a new round of negotiations on those issues — the priority of Canada, the U.S., the EU and Japan. Some say his tactics prompted the Cancun collapse. Will PM-to-be Paul Martin hold Pettigrew responsible when he forms a new Cabinet?
