Last night, I was fortunate enough to catch most of this speech by the Aga Khan on the CBC radio. His was the opening lecture for the 10th annual Lafontaine-Baldwin Symposium at Koerner Hall in the Royal Conservatory in Toronto which took place in October of last year. His highness spoke most eloquently about pluralism and diversity, not only in Canada, but in history and worldwide.
I found the speech captivating and I would like to share it here with you. Below you will find a video taken after the symposium of people’s reactions to the Aga Khan’s speech as well as excerpts from the his speech. Following that will be a link to the entire speech which is well worth the read. Enjoy.
