Keynote Speech: ‘Canada’s Arctic Foreign Policy’
Ladies and Gentlemen, Thank you Paul Berkman for the invitation to speak here this evening. It is always a pleasure to be back at Cambridge, and especially to be here as a guest of the Scott Polar Research Institute. Our event tonight builds on a highly valued partnership between the Institute and the Canadian High Commission. The central theme for our collaboration is, of course, the Arctic, and, tonight, I am delighted to speak about Canada’s Arctic Foreign Policy to such an audience of distinguished experts. I don’t pretend to be an expert myself, but the Arctic has been something of a constant theme throughout my career in Canada’s foreign service.
