Address to the Annual General Meeting of the Academic Council on the United Nations System, Geneva
I suspect my views on the Iraq war are well enough known in this crowd, so I won’t risk boring people by repeating them. If anyone wants to debate the soundness of the Canadian decision not to go to war on Iraq, I will be glad to accommodate them. What I thought I would try to reflect on, rather, is the bigger picture. What kind of world are we bequeathing to our children? And, to the extent that Canada can do anything about it, what is it we should do?
