Human Settlements and Urban Expansion in Canada
All of us here today are aware that there is a broader dimension to our relationship with the Commonwealth than that occasioned by personal ties. Do not think that there is any doubt that the Commonwealth has been a success in many areas but it has been an outstanding success in the area of encouraging productive and meaningful relationships between countries of widely divergent societies and cultures. Even the severe strains which were apparent in Singapore were resolved largely because of our joint determination to ensure that the forces that bind us together prevailed, rather than the genuine differences in views which inevitably arise from our different perspectives on some matters. The Commonwealth has proved that effective relationships founded on very broadly defined goals can be lasting and, in this respect, it is a model for others to follow.
