The Fast Chat experience was quite educational for me—the experts from elsewhere were quite sharp and it was most interesting to get hear some European voices about these matters. The questions by the Canadian folks at DFATD also were suggestive about the debates taking place in the Pearson building. That they reach out for other perspectives speaks well of DFATD. As always, when I meet with Canadians working for the government, I am most impressed. If only the Prime Minister actually listened more to the public service, but that is a discussion for another day.
