Former U.S. vice-president Dick Cheney has cancelled a Canadian speaking appearance due to security concerns sparked by demonstrations during a visit he made to Vancouver last fall, the event promoter said Monday.
Mr. Cheney, whom the protesters denounced as a war criminal, was slated to talk about his experiences in office and the current American political situation at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on April 24. However, Ryan Ruppert, of Spectre Live Corp., said Mr. Cheney and his daughter Elizabeth had begged off via their agent.

"(They) decided it was better for their personal safety they stay out of Canada."
