William Barton chosen as chairman of new Institute

Roy McFarlane — November 1984

OTTAWA — William Barton, former Canadian Ambassador to the United Nations, was selected chairman of the Canadian Institute for International Peace and Security October 3. Margaret Fulton, President of Mount SI. Vincent University, Halifax was selected vice-chairman. The selections were made by their colleagues on the Board of Directors of the Institute.

In a press conference following the meeting, Barton explained that the Directors had preliminary discussions about the nature of the Institute and that no major decisions had been made. The first priority of the Directors will be to elect an Executive Director. The Executive Director will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the Institute, and will be the one most likely to set the tone for the Institute’s future.

No decision has yet been made on the location of the Institute, though Barton indicated that the Board will recommend it be set up in Ottawa. Beyond that, the Institute is not yet able to begin operating.

“At the moment all we have is a filing cabinet full of people who want jobs and proposals for things we should do, no mechanism to cope with them, nobody to even answer the mail, no phone, no office and, until we get that set up, obviously we arc not in a position to engage in the other kinds of discussions.” Barton said.

The Board of Directors will meet again on November 2nd.
