Bush Backers Bashed

TORONTO -- Hundreds of student protesters chanting "shame, shame" hurled snowballs at dignitaries as they arrived at Canada's largest university Wednesday for a ceremony honoring former U.S. president George Bush.


"It reminds me of happy hour at the Baghdad Ramada Inn out there," Bush said after receiving an honorary doctor of laws degree from the University of Toronto over the din of megaphones, drums and chants from protesters gathered outside.


Protesters cited Bush's career in the CIA, the Iran-Contra scandal and 1989 U.S. invasion of Panama as evidence of his unsuitability for the degree.
