Irish rock star Bono gave a boost to Paul Martin  
sitting at his side while the prime minister talked
about what his government is doing for AIDS
funding and Africa.

This was the second time the singer for the Irish
band U2 had helped Martin get attention for his
international initiatives. Bono was the keynote
speaker at the Liberal leadership convention in
November 2003.

Martin promised to contribute $70 million to the
Bono-backed Global Fund to Fight AIDS,
Tuberculosis and Malaria. Martin's pledge
double was to Canada's contribution to the fund,
which was a new program by the World Health
Organization to help countries develop
treatment plans and strategies.

Canada is being clever," said Bono.
