But all this is part of our international footprint visionary, modern and acclaimed past. “Canada’s position on the world stage is tenuous, if not non-existent. The era of blue helmets and anti-apartheid struggle is over. We don’t know what the country is worth on the international stage beyond being America’s little brother and staunch ally.
