LI President of Honour Lord Alderdice recieves honourary degree from Queen’s University

LI President of Honour Lord John Alderdice has been recognized with an honorary degree from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario for his peace building efforts in Northern Ireland and around the world.

Addressing a number of students and academia during the Spring Convocation ceremony at Grant Hall he said:

However, it is important to understand that the generation you represent has the possibility of making that paradigm shift not just for your generation but for the generations ahead.

During his visit to Canada, Lord Alderdice also met with representatives from the Liberal Party of Canada (LPC, LI full-member) including Bob Oliphant MP and former LI VP on the Bureau Senator Art Eggleton and discussed among other issues the British general elections and furthering the cooperation between the party and Liberal International.
