A request to Canadians
The Government believes that in the years to come, Canadians want their foreign
policy to continue to reflect their national identity, values and experience, and
to promote security and prosperity at home and abroad. Much has changed since the
last review of Canada's foreign policy. Debates over globalization and its
impacts, over the global menace of terrorism, over our role in North America, over
the intensified dialogue of cultures, and over the capacity of international institutions
to respond effectively - all of these now require fresh reflection and a focus
on the priorities that will shape our future choices. Together, the citizens and
Government of Canada need to address the questions in this paper. Through your
comments, you can help us to ensure that the foreign policy of Canada continues
to represent the views of Canadians.
