Glendon screens film on Canadians’ resistance to intervene in Iraq in 2003

Members of the York University community are invited to a film screening of Sur la corde raide, a film by Claude Guilman, on Nov. 12 at the Glendon Campus.

The screening begins at 6:30 p.m. in York Hall, room A100, and will be followed by a question-and-answer period. The film is in French, but will have English subtitles.

Sur la corde raide reviews the reasons why Canadians refused to intervene in Iraq in 2003 alongside the United States. The film highlights the political power struggle that took place behind the scenes with the neighbor from the south who has always been interventionist on the international scene, serve their economic and geostrategic interests. This historic decision could have had far-reaching consequences for Canada as many key players and analysts of the time show the terrible price to pay when diplomacy fails to resolve conflicts around the world.
