Canada’s “No” To The War In Iraq : Ten Years On Symposium

On 17 March 2003, Prime Minister Jean Chrétien announced to the House of Commons that, without an authorizing resolution by the Security Council of the United Nations, Canada would not be participating in the coalition preparing to invade Iraq.

Ten years on, it is time to take another look at this decision. How and why was this decision taken? What were the consequences—for Canada, the United States and other states? Why was it so indicative of a certain conception of Canada's place in the world? What are the lessons that we can learn from this episode?
