The Winds of Change in the New Nations

A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club of Toronto. The speaker addresses the audience nine years after leaving Canada to live in Britain. A re-orientation of thinking for the speaker during that time in terms of world affairs. Seeing the difficulties for Canada, possibly because of living in the shadow of the United States, "to take a realistic view of just what is going on in the world, and the part that Canada should, and largely is not, playing in world affairs." How Canada is viewed and accepted by the rest of the world. The changing nature of the world, and of nations. The change from the Empire to the Commonwealth. What really links Commonwealth countries. The role and importance of communication to civilization. Objectives to be accomplished by new and emerging nations. Increasing the standard of living in emergent nations. Doing something constructive to hurry along the development of emerging peoples. The establishment of the Thomson Foundation. The multi-purposes of the Foundation. Specific activities and programmes of the Foundation. The development of mass media, and the role of the media in developing nations. Intentions and goals of the Thomson Foundation.
