On October 22, 2014, a nation stood still. This was the day there was a shooting at the National War Memorial in Ottawa. Artist Katerina Mertikas was moved to produce the painting Honouring My Father, which became an instant touchstone to that tragic day. Menna Glyn Andrews was so inspired by this image that she took up her pen and to follow Katerina's example. Her intention is that readers will be moved to share how they deal with grief. They will be able to add their own memories of that day to the narrative and work on explaining their feelings. Menna's hope is that the messages in this book will help others to act on their inspirations and move forward from tragedy.
Lloyd Axworthy, former Minister of Foreign Affairs, rose to international prominence in the mid-1990s for his comprehensive campaign to ban the use of anti-personnel landmines, which led to the signing of the Ottawa Treaty in 1997 by 122 countries and his own nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. In this wide-ranging lecture, Axworthy reflects on liberal values, Canadian politics, and the rise of U.S./Canadian border issues since the terrorist attack on the United States in September 2001. Axworthy's distinctive voice shines through with personal anecdotes about his life in politics and his thoughts on Canada's sometimes uneasy relations with its southern neighbour and largest trading partner. Axworthy addresses many troubling issues, including the conflict in Afghanistan where Canadian soldiers potentially contravened Canada's international treaties by handing over prisoners to the U.S. He also discusses Canadian territorial sovereignty in the context of U.S. 'homeland security,' as well as international inaction on conflicts in Africa that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people. Dr. Axworthy delivered Liberals at the Border in March 2002 as the sixth annual Senator Keith Davey Lecture at Victoria University in the University of Toronto.
