Aga Khan: Peoples of Canada are steeped in their tradition of tolerance, generosity and compassionYes, this is indeed a crucial time for Canada as you continue your search for the best Constitutional solution to your future, but let me emphasize that Canada remains for the rest of the world, an enviable heaven – a heaven of peace, and of immense natural beauty and wealth. The wealth I speak of, is not merely it’s natural resources but the peoples of Canada, steeped in your tradition of tolerance, generosity and compassion in alleviating human suffering and respect for diversity of thought and culture.
