Much of the World Views Bush Administration Policies with Disdain and Fear

Interview with David Cadman, deputy mayor of the City of Vancouver, British Columbia, conducted by Scott Harris

From Sept. 9-11, New Haven, Conn., hosted the 17th annual assembly of the International Association of Peace Messenger Cities. About 90 cities have been recognized by the United Nations Secretary General for excellence in working for peace. These cities have undertaken projects ranging from including a peace curricula in their schools to fighting Star Wars, the Reagan-era missile shield proposal that has been resurrected by President George W. Bush. The focus of this year's assembly is the abolition of nuclear weapons.

One of the attendees at the assembly was David Cadman, deputy mayor of the City of Vancouver, British Columbia. His city is at the forefront in working for peaceful settlement of conflicts, dedicating resources to human development and establishing alternatives to incarceration. Cadman was at the founding conference of the Peace Messenger Cities in 1989 and spends a lot of his time traveling the world to attend peace conferences.

Between The Lines' Melinda Tuhus spoke with David Cadman while on a bus from New Haven to New York, where delegates to the conference visited the United Nations and attended forums on the UN's role in peace and development. He discusses an outsider's view of the United States after the Bush administration's invasion and occupation of Iraq and some of the peace projects his city has undertaken.

The Majority Of The World? Can't Be Wrong!
18 Sep 2004
I agree with the World opinion. George W. Bush is a BIG problem for us and the World.
This election ISN'T about Democrat or Republican. It's about the future of the United States. And the future of the United States leading the World.
Bush wins? We lose. The World loses. We lose our allies. We lose being a Leader of democracy. We lose much of our democracy. And domesticly? More layoffs. More red ink for cities and states. The only good out of a Bush win? A third party will emerge that will trounce both major parties.
For OUR future.
Bush MUST go!
