Prime Minister Stephen Harper telephoned US President George W. Bush on Friday to give him notice that Canada intends to launch a formal protest over the US treatment of a Canadian who was sent by American authorities to a Syrian prison as a suspected terrorist. Syrian-born Maher Arar was exonerated of all suspicion of terrorist activity last month by a Canadian commission of inquiry. He is one of the best-known cases of extraordinary rendition - the US transfer of foreign terror suspects to third countries without court approval. The Prime Minister's Office said the two leaders spoke by phone on a number of global issues.
