Former UN Ambassador Heinbecker to Speak at U of W

January 6, 2011 6:25 AM | Entertainment

Paul Heinbecker (HANDOUT)

A career diplomat and former Canadian Ambassador to the United Nations will speak at the University of Winnipeg on Wednesday, January 19.

Paul Heinbecker has recently released a new book titled, “Getting Back in the Game: A Foreign Policy Playbook for Canada.”

Heinbecker will present his vision for the future of Canadian foreign policy, a future in which Canada can work both with the United States and apart from it, and in which the Canadian government can take a stand and effect change on issues of the day, from climate change to the Middle East.

Heinbecker has more than 30 years experience and will offer a comprehensive, behind the scenes look at how the country got to where it is, and how Canada can move forward.

The free lecture will take place in Eckhardt-Grammate Hall, 3rd floor, Centennial Hall at 515 Portage Avenue from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

A question and answer session will follow.
