Pamela Wallin: Reporting on Afghanistan

    The Canadian Journalism Foundation Hosts Jan. 29 Event with Member of
    Independent Panel

    TORONTO, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - Following on the release of the report from the
Independent Panel on Canada's Future in Afghanistan, panel member Pamela
Wallin will discuss what she learned and what she sees as Canada's future role
in Afghanistan.

    What:  In October 2007, Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed the
           Independent Panel on Canada's Future Role in Afghanistan, chaired
           by former Deputy Prime Minister John Manley, to review Canada's
           mission and mandate in that country. One of the panel members was
           former journalist and Canadian Consul-General in New York Pamela
           Wallin. Ms. Wallin will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the
           panel's work and tour of Afghanistan -- what they learned, their
           conclusions, and their recommendations for Canada's future role
           once the current military mandate expires next year.

    Who:   Join Pamela Wallin, an Officer of the Order of Canada who serves
           as a top advisor on Canada-U.S. relations to the president of the
           Americas Society and the Council of the Americas in New York.
