Prime Ministers Series: Jean Chrétien – The Chrétien Doctrine

The Prime Ministers Series highlights transformative policy initiatives of Canadian prime ministers. The second edition of the event features Jean Chrétien. It is hosted by the University of Ottawa’s Professional Development Institute and the Canada School of Public Service. The Ottawa conference explores four nation-building themes that evoked tough choices and fierce resistance.

John Manley (senior business adviser, Bennett Jones LLP and former Liberal cabinet minister), Claude Laverdure (honorary senior fellow, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Ottawa and Chrétien’s former national security adviser) and Margaret Bloodworth (honorary senior fellow, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, University of Ottawa and Chrétien’s former foreign policy adviser) discuss the decision to keep Canada out of the Iraq war.
