Canada Can Do More and Better For Democracy Promotion Abroad. As the long-awaited international policy review has yet again been delayed, a new study by the IRPP concludes that Canadians should have a forum to debate whether they want to invest in a renewed and enhanced role in democratic assistance. The study notes that Canada's endeavours in democracy assistance, while remaining quite limited, have earned international appreciation. "Canada presents a non-threatening moderate face to the world, and, as a pluralist, federalist, multicultural ethnically and linguistically diverse country, offers potentially useful experience on the democratic accommodation of differences," says author Gerald J. Schmitz.
