“The systems in the world are not working well,” said Fred Kuntz, vice-president of public affairs for the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), the policy think tank housed in the former Seagram Museum at Caroline and Erb streets.
“Everything seems to be half broken,” he added, citing various environmental crises and the collapse of world financial markets in 2008.
