Yes. We have committed to doing this through our support of many international declarations and statements, including the Culture of Peace programme for action, and we need to live up to our commitments. There are many ways Canada can act to address the root causes of violent conflict and insecurity, and it is also important that Canada refrain from doing things that promote insecurity like exporting arms to countries in conflict and getting involved in the missile defense initiative.

I will omit answers to the 3 questions under the Prosperity heading due to lack of time.
