Unique views from John F. Kennedy, Nelson Mandela, Indira Gandhi, and dozens of other world leaders reveal how foreigners see Canada. During the First World War, foreign leaders began addressing Canadians in our House of Commons and ever since, have continued influencing how we think about our role in global affairs. For a century now, this succession of world figures has brought urgent messages about Canada’s importance in world wars, to the United Nations, Cold War security, decolonization and modernization, advancing human rights, environmental conservation, and combating terrorism. Each foreign leader addressing Canada’s parliament sought to forge new partnerships between their own country and ours in a rapidly evolving global context. Over the decades these speeches chart the stunning transformation of international affairs and Canada’s place in the world. No other source provides a complete record of this body of high-level oratory, gathered here for the first time in Foreign Voices in the House.
