Since being named Canada's new ambassador to Afghanistan in June, William Crosbie has kept largely out of the public eye. A former political staffer during the late 1980s with the Mulroney-era Progressive Conservative government, Mr. Crosbie joined the Department of Foreign Affairs in 1993. He served as a trade negotiator, at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC, and as director general for North America before taking up the post of assistant deputy minister for the new Consular Services and Emergency Management Branch.
