Even in Psychology the most obscure research seems to find grant money from the US Office of Naval Research. This kind of reliance is not far removed from that of uranium refinery workers in Port Hope or of the Litton employees in Rexdale. In a helpless situation it is prostitution.

George Ignatieff spoke at the first plenary session of the annual conference of the Group of 78 on 25 September. The session, chaired by Canada’s Disarmament Ambassador, Douglas Roche, was concerned with “constructive internationalism”. Addressing the question, “UN: A Security Alternative for Canada”, was a second plenary panel in which SfP board member Hanna Newcombe participated. Other SfP board members contributing to the deliberations were Eric Fawcett, Janet Wood and UN representative Walter Dorn, who served as recorder for the meeting of the working group on UN Peace-Keeping and Regional Conflicts.
