Canada's role of membership responsibilities
As indicated in the Introduction to  Peace in the Family of Man by Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, available on the Internet in html at http://www.peace.ca/peaceinthefamilyofman.htm : 

"It is very important for Canadians to consider our responsibility to help build peace in our communities and world."  I believe Canada is well placed to play a special role.  Canadians are blessed with resources and skills, and hence we have more responsibility to serve the world in building peace.  It is in our own best interest to help build a more effective United Nations, and international law and order.  It is also in our own best interest to support other countries in their quest for peace – particularly our closest neighbour, the United States, with whom we have a special relationship.  Mr. Pearson’s words provide insight into the dynamics and how we might pursue this goal in a pragmatic way.  Mr. Pearson provides a good example of a “Servant Leader”.  (reference http://www.peace.ca/servantleadership.htm and http://www.peaceleader.htm )

Canada has an opportunity and responsibility to build upon Mr. Pearson’s work and make our country a Peace Education “Student/Tourist Destination”, and a source of skilled Peace Consultants/expertise available to serve the world. 

Canadian Leaders (government, industry, education, religious, etc.) have a special responsibility to build peace at home and abroad."  

In a recent survey of Canadians' perceptions by Environics Research Group, almost one-third of Canadians believe "peacekeeping and peacefulness" is the greatest contribution Canada has to offer the world.  Fundamental perceptions of Canada's role as a peaceful, tolerant nation endure.

I hope that you find our work and website to be helpful in your work, and an inspiration.  Best wishes.
