Rideau Institute opening reception photos

Rideau Institute logoI just wanted to thank everyone who attended our little office launch of the new Rideau Institute on International Affairs in February.  My special thanks to Senator Douglas Roche who gave a very generous and rousing speech about the work ahead and why a new policy and advocacy instutute is needed in Ottawa.  I have to admit it was very moving to be surrounded by so many good friends, and to have the opportunity to introduce our very talented staff of people who are going to make a better Canada for everyone.
