A long, hard, sober look at the long-term future of Canada. Where do we want to be in 12 years, a time during which the sum total of human knowledge will double once again. Opportunities during that time. A review which looks first at the immediate past 12 years; the key challenges Canada faces today; the directions the speaker thinks we should take to ensure we will look back on the next 12 years with pride. The role of Canadians and their leaders; sharing a vision; evangelizing the vision; being accountable for actions. The address is organized under the following headings: Economic and Fiscal Management; Human Capital Management; Information Management; and Labour Management. Making Canada in the year 2000 a "jewel in the world's crown." Five questions to ask for strategic action: What will it cost: Who is accountable: Can you measure the benefits? Will we have the right informaiton to evaluate it? What is the ultimate objective?
