Tribute to Lester B. Pearson, Nobel Peace Laureate (1957)
Celebrating Canada's 150th anniversary, we pay special tribute to Toronto born Lester Bowles Pearson, Canada's 14th Prime Minister and the only Canadian individual to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, which he won 60 years ago in 1957 for establishing the United Nations Emergency Force to resolve the Suez Canal Crisis. Pearson is known in international circles as the "Father of Modern Peacekeeping".
Of all our dreams today there is none more important - or so hard to realise - than that of peace in the world. May we never lose our faith in it or our resolve to do everything that can be done to convert it one day into reality.
