President's Message

By the time this reaches you Canada will have a new government, one that because of its huge majority is likely to last until 1998. The peace agenda to 1998 is enormous. All kinds of negative trends in society must be opposed and reversed. Something must be done about the presently increasing violence, about the deteriorating environment, and about the incredible wastage in current weapons production, not to mention the damage done by those weapons wherever they are used. Something will have to be done about the huge problem of systematic unemployment. I call on the membership of Science for Peace to assist the Executive in formulating its recommendations to the new Government of Canada, and to help us resume the close contacts we once developed and maintained in the Trudeau years. This is a job for you, not just for the Executive.
