Annan to address Canadian Parliament
Canoe News, Jan 23, 2004

DAVOS, Switzerland: United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan has accepted an invitation to address the Canadian Parliament sometime in the first two weeks of March, Prime Minister Paul Martin announced Friday. Martin, who met Annan privately at the World Economic Forum in this Swiss Alps resort on Friday, said the invitation to Annan was the first he has made to a world leader because he wanted to underline the importance of the United Nations at a crossroads in its history. "If the United Nations doesn't work, we are severely hobbled," he told a news conference.

Martin said in a world where superpowers like China and India are emerging to rival the economic might of the United States, the United Nations will be critical over the next decade in trying to determine how the world is governed. Annan will be the first UN secretary general to address Parliament in the more than 50-year history of the organization. By inviting Annan to speak to MPs and senators, Martin wants to express the role that Canada can play in achieving change at the United Nations. "Canada has a very important role to play in the world, it is a proactive role and it is a role that carries a wide number of areas," he said, citing the AIDS crisis in Africa and establishing the rule of law in failed states as examples of areas where Canada has made a difference. But Canada must also be involved in the way the United Nations evolves to deal with new global challenges, the prime minister said. "No country has as great an opportunity and as great a responsibility to make this happen as does Canada," he said.

Shams, scams & Kofi Annan ($17-billion Iraq oil money went to UN's inner circle). NewZealand Herald, Mar 27, 2004
The UN has been curiously disinclined to investigate where all that money went. It vanished from the UN-administered Iraq Oil For Food programme, and unlike last year's petty looting, those at the centre of suspicion aren't lowly bureaucrats but a tight cluster of high-up insiders centred on the office, family and inner circle of Secretary-General Kofi Annan himself.

Kofi Annan says Canada is UN 'pillar' (wants a 'new global consensus'). Canada Press, Mar 10, 2004
UN Secretary General Kofi Annan called Tuesday for $35 million in international aid for Haiti and promptly got $5 million from Prime Minister Paul Martin. Annan praised Canada as a pillar of the United Nations but said it must do more to fight poverty, protect the environment and foster good governance around the world...The secretary general, who was on a one-day visit, was greeted with a minute-long standing ovation as he rose to address Parliament. Apart from MPs and senators, the audience was studded with ambassadors, judges, top bureaucrats, senior military officers and John Ralston Saul, husband of Gov General Adrienne Clarkson...Annan told them that it's hard to imagine the UN without Canada

WHO IS MAURICE STRONG? (senior advisor to Canada's PM and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan)

* Paul Martin's dangerous advisor,, Dec 3, 2003
Maurice Strong has promised he will advise his friend and soon-to-be Prime Minister Paul Martin, for "free." We're tempted to say that is about what his advice is worth, but Strong's ideas are no joking matter. Strong, the senior advisor to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, is a leading advocate of one-world global governance. He advocates a radical environmentalism that is associated with people and movements that advocate depopulating the world. He has indicated support for China's brutal one-child policy and limiting family size to protect the earth's natural resources from the encroachment of man. Lastly, he was involved in the 2002 summit to develop a one-world religion that adopts as centrepiece environmental activism and colective governance (one-world government). With advisors like Strong, Paul Martin's vaunted position as a leader from the more conservative side of the Liberal Party should be seriously questioned. Strong's views place him firmly on the left and if successfully implemented (anywhere - at the international or national level) pose a direct threat to traditional religion, national sovereignty and human life.

THE MAN BEHIND THE DIPLOMAT, Guardian, Oct 14, 2001
...On Annan's left was an earnest young man who, like Vijay, was a UN economist. His field was telecommunications and he seemed awestruck in Annan's presence. 'So tell me,' said the great man, 'what are you doing for people of the Third World?' 'Well,' he replied, gulping asparagus risotto, 'our aim is to provide every adult male in Africa with a mobile phone.' 'Oh yes?' said the Nobel Peace Prize-winner. 'And what will that do to cure starvation?' There was an awkward silence and I decided to fill the gap. 'Once they've got mobile phones,' I explained, 'they can all order Domino's pizzas.' The young man went beetroot but the Secretary-General roared with laughter. 'Domino's pizzas,' he exclaimed, slapping me on the back. 'That's good. I'm going to use that in my next speech. You must work for me as a speechwriter...'
