Default Canadian Government Pensions reportable on 1040?

With the Canadian Government Pension(CPP) is this to be entered anywhere on the 1040 or do I just exclude that amount from my total income as I understand there is a tax treaty which excludes the CPP? Just not sure if still have to enter the the amount of the government pension somewhere on the 1040.

Check IRS Publication 597 and it should clear things up. In particular, if you take a treaty position you generally must attach Form 8833. So yes, you will be reporting that income to the IRS even if it's not U.S. taxable.
