October 3, 2007
I have some good news for you about an initiative that could make Canada a leader in ensuring that space is used for peace.
I am very pleased to announce that we are working with Canadian astronaut and former president of the Canadian Space Agency, Captain Marc Garneau, to ensure leadership on peaceful uses of space and the development of a national Canadian space policy.
We are also collaborating with the Globe and Mail. Captain Garneau will be participating LIVE in an online Globe and Mail discussion from Parliament Hill, Thursday, October 4, from 1:30 to 2:00 p.m. EDT.
I encourage you to submit your questions to Marc Garneau as soon as possible through the Globe and Mail web site, and join us tomorrow to read his replies.
The Ottawa Citizen will be publishing an op-ed by Capt. Garneau on Thursday, to coincide with his press conference and parliamentary briefing on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Sputnik.
I hope this will help us keep weapons out of space, and encourage the government to take a leadership role.
