Presenter: Neil Mussell
Foreign aid in Canada is not what it used to be. What has changed? Neil Mussell, a 37 year employee of CEDA (Canadian Economic Development Agency) will help us to get started thinking about what Canadian foreign aid was, and what it could be.

Are the government’s plans to reform it a good idea?
