On September 10, more than 200 diplomats, students, retired foreign service officers, and policy workers filled the Cadieux Auditorium at Foreign Affairs Canada to hear six presentations by prominent Canadians. The speeches were loosely linked, covering multilateral cooperation, Canada-U.S. relations, international trade and development, and emergency preparedness. Organized by the Canadian Institute of International Affairs, the day-long seminar series allowed for extensive question-and-answer sessions following each speaker, and served as an unofficial advisory session to the federal government as it prepares to deliver its major foreign policy review in November.
