Public Record - Canada and the UN Security Council Panel Oct. 13


The Centre for International Policy Studies (CIPS) at the University of Ottawa, organized a panel discussion, "Canada and the UN Security Council: Now What?," on October 13th. Participants examined the outcome and implications of Canada's failure to obtain a seat on the UN Security Council. Canada withdrew its bid the previous day after trailing Portugal on the second ballot. The panellists were Yves Fortier (Canadian Ambassador to the UN from 1988 to 1992), Louise Fréchette (UN Deputy Secretary-General from 1998 to 2006), Paul Heinbecker (Canadian Ambassador to the UN from 2000 to 2004) and the Honourable Allan Rock (Canadian Ambassador to the UN from 2004 to 2006).
