‘Beyond a dream’: Roméo Dallaire on Canada improving diplomatic relations with Rwanda

WARNING: Video contains disturbing content. Viewer discretion is advised. Speaking to Global News’ David Akin on Thursday, former Canadian Forces Lieutenant General Roméo Dallaire reflected on how far history has come since the 1993 Rwandan genocide, to Canada’s recent announcement of establishing diplomatic relations with Rwanda. “My wife helped me wash away my tears from having been more or less essentially abandoned 28 years ago, walking knee deep in bodies and not seeing an end to it,” Dallaire said. “To now, this extraordinary country of ours, this leadership of middle power… putting itself in the frontlines of a diplomatic exercise... That to me, was beyond a dream.”
