Obama looking for help from Canada at nuclear summit: Queen’s professor

Queen’s University professor Anthony Seaboyer, a nuclear proliferation expert at the Queen’s Centre for International Relations, is available to talk about the nuclear summit taking place in Washington today.

Professor Seaboyer feels President Obama will be looking for Canadian support to help convince many people in his administration and around the world, that a nuclear-free world is possible.

“President Obama is way ahead of many in his administration on this, ahead of many Americans and even further ahead of many Europeans. The president needs back up on the idea of a nuclear-free world and Canada can provide that back up,” said Professor Seaboyer.
