Experts to discuss Iraq election
By Lee Carter
BBC News, Toronto

A conference to discuss preparations for next month's elections in Iraq 
is being held in Canada. But the closed-door event is so secret, 
organisers will not even reveal the identity and number of the 
delegates. However, it is known that some of those attending the forum 
are international electoral experts, including a number from Arab 
countries.
. . .
Canada has been anxious to play a positive role in the rebuilding of 
Iraq. It opposed the US-led war there but has recently been trying to 
repair relations with the US. It is believed Mr Bush asked Canada to 
host the conference when he visited Ottawa at the beginning of this 
month.

Canada is often seen as an ally of the US but neutral enough to play 
the role of honest broker.
