It seems every week, I’m reading or hearing or seeing something that makes me glad to live in Canada.
This week it’s this published letter to Condi Rice, from Lloyd Axworthy.
I liked this paragraph, particularly:
I invite you to expand the narrow perspective that seems to inform your opinions of Canada by ranging far wider in your reach of contacts and discussions. You would find that what is rising in Canada is not so much anti-Americanism, as claimed by your and our right-wing commentators, but fundamental disagreements with certain policies of your government. You would see that rather than just reacting to events by drawing on old conventional wisdoms, many Canadians are trying to think our way through to some ideas that can be helpful in building a more secure world.
