Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the author's remarks at the gathering that took place at Toronto in 1996 to honour the contribution of the Canadian Armed Forces to the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus. He points out that Canada's experience with Cyprus has been a positive one. It has been estimated that over 40,000 Canadian soldiers served in United Nations Operation in Cyprus (UNFICYP) and they, with their families, even though saddened by the experience of the division of Cyprus and inevitably made certain comparisons, they maintained a constant interest in the island. The author believes that it is quite appropriate to salute Canada's involvement in Cyprus not only in peace-keeping but also in peace-making, remembering that Canada was one of the sponsors of the 1978 Anglo- American-Canadian proposal, and that Joe Clark, a distinguished Canadian, served as the U.N. Special Representative.
