Our Canadian Values – Can They Heal the World?: 8:00 pm – 8:45 pm on September 23rd, 2020
John Stackhouse, author, journalist, and senior fellow at the Munk School of Global Affairs and Policy, argues that Canada’s voice is in danger of being lost in the noise as larger powers and rapidly developing nations vociferously claim their place as international influencers. After Canada’s failure to gain a seat at the United Nations Security Council, our opportunity to affect important global decisions becomes even more limited. However, John suggests that we have an unparalleled resource available that can ensure that our distinct voice is heard in the world, if we choose to harness it. Join John and Ben Charland for this timely discussion.
