The Lieutenant Governor attended a Glendon College Debate: “Is the UN Still Relevant?” as the guest of honour.
The debate prompt was: “Canada has been a strong supporter of the UN and played a key role in setting up the UN peacekeeping mission, and continues to support the peace keeping operations. Canada has also supported UN’s humanitarian assistance programmes, economic development efforts, human rights and gender rights programmes and overall peace and security initiatives. But with all its diverse programmes and political activities is the UN still relevant and are the institutions established some 70 years ago still serve humanity today?”
Thank you to the panellists of last night's @glendonspia debate for their insights and spirited conversation. May the @UN Charter’s opening words ‘We the Peoples’ remind us of the dignity and importance of a world that works for everyone. pic.twitter.com/fYO3SV9BgY
