Connecting with the World

By IISD on October 5, 2001
This report, Connecting With the World, provides, in my view, timely commentary and vitalcounsel to all Canadians.

Over the half-century since the end of the Second World War, we Canadians have exercised a significant influence in world events and have contributed to global well-being in ways vastly in excess of our population size and our economic might. The past, however, is not necessarily prologue. The one thing that we know for certain is that we are confronting a very different future from what has gone before. If Canadians are to prosper in that future and if we are to bequeath a better world to our children, we will need not merely to respond to new challenges but to develop the leadership needed for the shaping of tomorrow's realities.
