Montreal !

How refreshing it was to be in Montreal attending the second annual “Global Canada.” This is a remarkable gathering of Canadian globalists, still trying to figure out why they invite me!
Refreshing and Montreal in the same sentence usually has something to do with the weather; the weather was beautiful as you will see from one of the photos.
It was soooo encouraging in these times of division to listen to the detailed, coherent and elegant words of Minister Anglade in both official languages articulate an innovation strategy for Quebec and Canada. The minister born in Montreal to Haitian parents closed her presentation in Creole.
So while our union in Canada and Quebec is not perfect, we are at an interesting reflection point in how we have moved beyond referenda to use our diversity as a strength to develop our society and in the case of Quebec a booming economy.
