“EDITORIAL: Halifax Security Forum worthy investment”
by Editorial Board
Bringing together senior officials from mostly democratic nations around the world to freely discuss problems, share knowledge and debate possible responses to global security challenges, from Ukraine to the Middle East, is clearly a good idea.
In fact, if an event like this didn’t already exist, reasonable people in democratic countries would no doubt support launching this type of annual get-together.
Just such a conference, however, does exist. The Halifax International Security Forum (HISF), which holds its sixth annual November sessions in Nova Scotia’s capital city this weekend, has become — since first meeting here in 2009 — one of only a handful of must-attend global security events on the international calendar.
