Mr. Speaker, today is United Nations Day. It is a pleasure for me to tell the House how important this organization is to Canada.
We feel that multilateral cooperation is the best way to ensure long term international security.
The UN has experienced numerous difficulties in the past year. As a result, there are many questions about the organization's role and operation.
It is essential that the UN remain at the centre of the international response to the challenges the world is now facing.
Canada will continue to support it in that role.
