How Unimportant is Canada to the U.S. (Media)?

I have Slate's Today's Papers sent to me daily. It provides a summary of the front pages and other items of five major newspapers in the U.S.

Even though U.S. President Bush is visiting Canada, Today's Papers contains not one mention of Canada, of the talks between George Bush and Paul Martin (Canada's Prime Minister), nor of the on-going trade disputes between the countries.

At 8am this morning, I checked, and sure enough, there was no mention of Canada in the front pages of the on-line versions of today's NYTimes, the LATimes, the Wall Street Journal, or the Washington Post. However, the USA Today does mention the President's visit to Halifax, as well as his press conference in Ottawa.
