Queen Rania Al Abdullah: Canada has to lead

Queen Rania Al Abdullah has a column in today’s The Globe and Mail expressing the need to pursue “Education for All” goals and the role Canada can play as host of the G8 and G20 can play in pushing the issue.

She writes:

In June, Canada is set to play host to the G8 and the G20, the political equivalent of the Winter Olympics. It’s where Canada can fight for education with the tenacity of its victorious hockey team.

Because, like that hockey team, Canada’s education system is a national treasure and one of the best in the world. The Canadian International Development Agency is a power player, lifting the lives of Haitians, Iraqis, Afghans and many others.

Why is Education for All Canada’s calling? Because, if nothing else, education is a fundamental Canadian value . I mean, quality education for every child? That’s what I call Canadian, eh?
