Professor Gerhard Stroink of the Physics Department of Dalhousie University has sent information on a number of events. On January 24, 1984, the Dalhousie Faculty Association passed unanimously the motion: “The Dalhousie Faculty Association joins with the CAUT in urging the Government of Canada to take all possible steps to control the development and deployment of weapons of mass destruction, and, in particular, to refuse to participate in the development and testing of any such weapons or their delivery systems, including the cruise missile.”
The Maritime Undergraduate Physics Conference was held on February 14. Science for Peace members were invited to join with the undergraduates to hear an address by Professor Lynn Trainor of the University of Toronto: “Scientists: architects of hope or despair?”
Professor Stroink was invited to represent Science for Peace at a seminar-panel of several members of different peace organizations on March 16. Professor Stroink’s 12-year-old son gave a placard to the visiting USSR hockey team in a bid to enhance friendship between our two countries. Finally, he plans to have an article in the University News on Science for Peace.
