The Need For A World Vision

The Need For A World Vision

     The present world food crisis is the latest example that many of our problems are world problems and can only be solved on a world scale. What we see now are national governments, adapting national policies  to solve the problem, be it Australia, Asia or Africa.  We are living in a highly interdependent world where the problems in one  part of the world affect other parts of the world. Sadly, there is no world body taking a global view of things and adapting global policies. The only institution we have is the United Nations and it's many agencies, but they are still weak,  and they still do not receive the support they deserve from member nations.

     The need of the hour is to strengthen the United Nations, and Canada can play a leading role in this effort.
