    Sure hope you find a great candidate for this and that the University sees fit to finance it. More important than ever when the world is in such turmoil and governments everywhere respond to situations with bombs and more military endeavours – virtually all of which fail and only complicate matters. And I hope the centre can looks at Canada’s arms industry and who it sells to. Selling arms to Saudi Arabia under its new even more fundamentalist King Salman and his new henchmen (yes, they are all men) is selling our national sole to the devil. Thanks for posting this Whitney. Good luck!
