Who's Up Next? Why, That Would Be Romeo Dallaire
I plan to shake hands with the man who shook hands with the Devil
On Feburary 21, 2008, Lieutenant-General and current Senator Romeo Dallaire will be delivering a keynote address to the University of Alberta's Global Voices conference.
As was the case with Michael Ignatieff's recent visit to the U of A campus, I'll be there to hear what he has to say, and ask him some very important questions.
-Do you agree that the nature of peacekeeping has changed over the past decade, and do you think the Pearsonian model of peacekeeping remains one that Canada should remain committed to?
-What kind of commitment should Canada make to halting the atrocities currently occuring in Darfur?
-Do you believe the War on Terror can be altered to enhance peacekeeping initiatives, or do you believe it is detrimental to such efforts?
Once again, I fully expect that General Dallaire will have some interesting -- and enlightening -- things to say.
