The actions of a handful of terrorists reverberate still. Across much of the globe, nation upon nation has attempted to come to grips with an event that, in ninety minutes, mandated a re-examination of government priorities, domestic vulnerabilities and international alliances. Little has been left untouched. This is perhaps most true within the shifting sands of foreign policy.

On October 16 and 17, 2003, the Department of Canadian Heritage, in partnership with the Canadian Embassy in France, hosted in Gatineau (Quebec) a conference and workshop on Canadian and French Perspectives on Diversity. This event was a follow- up to an earlier one hosted by the Institut de Recherché sur les Sociétés Contemporaines (IRESCO) of the Centre national de la recherché scientifique (CNRS) in Paris, in the spring of 2001. Both events, along with a workshop to take place in Paris June 3 to 6, 2004, were held to increase understanding between the two countries in matters of diversity, and ultimately to foster comparative research in this area in time for the celebration of Champlain’s 400 year ago arrival in Canada. This edition of Canadian Issues is devoted to highlighting some of the research involved in the October 2003 event.

In reflecting on the theme "Giving the Future a Past," the authors of the articles you are about to read touch on many of the issues that have preoccupied Canadian historians over the past decades. How can we convince students that history is as relevant as computer science? How can we prevent history as a discipline from being lost in the fog of an integrated and streamlined social sciences curriculum? How can we present a coherent account of Canadian history while at the same time giving fair representation to the many different histories experienced by Canada's diverse population? And, at the end of the day, how can we teach history in a way that does not put students to sleep?

The term "branding" which at one time evoked images of hot irons and bawling cattle has come to mean the perceived set of qualities that renders something unique...that distinguishes an entity from other, similar entities. For obvious reasons, "branding" has long been of concern to the private sector where companies work hard to differentiate their products from those of their competitors. More recently, however, the term has found its way into our policy discourse. We thus find public officials talking about how to "brand" Canada in today's global world: how to create and sustain an image of the country that is both appealing and true, an image that attracts outsiders, creates interest and produces a willingness to do business and to partner with Canada in shared ventures, be they political or economic.
