Welcome to Canadian Pugwash Group

Education on global security, in a broad sense, is the mandate of Canadian Pugwash, carried out by sponsoring meetings, workshops and roundtables to foster informed discussion of experts, for the purpose of providing information which can be useful in the formation of government policy.

Walter Dorn was a speaker on on the occasion of the re-dedication of the Cenotaph in Pugwash Nova Scotia.

One could argue that nobody is more aware of the global need for peace than a veteran. The veterans of Pugwash have made this awareness public and are working to raise that awareness in others.  The Pugwash branch of the Royal Canadian Legion has recently undergone a name change, and is now known as “Royal Canadian Legion Peace Branch #60, Pugwash”.

Cenotaph.jpgOn Saturday, July 11th, a ceremony was held to re-dedicate the Pugwash cenotaph.  Speakers included Mike Lester, President of Peace Branch #60, Stephen Leahey, Chair of the Pugwash Peace Exchange and Dr. Walter Dorn, Chair of Canadian Pugwash Group and an Associate Professor at Canadian Forces College.  Dorn remarked “Beneath the glory of the deep blue sky, the bright red and white Canadian flag, and next to the Pugwash cenotaph honouring soldiers who have sacrificed their lives for peace, it is most fitting that you dedicate here the Pugwash Legion to peace. The Legion is doing something very honourable and quite pioneering in not only dedicating itself but renaming itself as a Peace Legion. This is a significant moment in history of peace, which is woven into our lives and written in our hearts.”
