The speaker's experience over the last 20 months that he has been in Canada. A conversation with friends rather than a formal speech, about four pressing issues. Accentuating the positive. The relationship between our two countries on the upswing. The four pressing issues: passports and the requirements of The Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI) adoped by Congress in 2004; intellectual property rights and copyright laws; SPP (Security and Prosperity Partnership); Afghanistan. The speaker offered some personal insights and thoughts on each issue, then opened the floor for questions.
