Introduction

Thank you very much for coming today. I am delighted to be a guest of the Economic Club of Canada.

I want to speak to you today about the future.

About the challenge of maintaining, in that future, our standard of living and our quality of life.

And about the crucial role that Canadian universities are playing in the national effort to meet that challenge.
