The Role of the Canadian Armed Forces: Peacekeeping & Contemporary Realities

November 20, 2017

On today's Global Exchange Podcast, we look at the Canadian government's recent announcement to 'renew' its commitment to UN peacekeeping operations. Join host Dave Perry in conversation with LGen (ret'd) D. Michael Day as they discuss the implications of Canadian peacekeeping, the realities of intervening militarily in the 21st century, and the role of Canadian peacekeepers in today's conflict hot-spots. Along the way, they also discuss the human cost of war, and byway of that, the inevitable human cost Canadians will bear as a result of the government's commitment to new peacekeeping operations.
