Description: In spite of the sense of "mutual interests," [Bob Rae] faced pointed questions after his 20-minute presentation, which focused on the "relatively new idea of universal rights, universal freedoms and universal equality," and the belief that Canadians "share a common humanity" with everyone else on Earth. Rae praised Mennonites as forerunners of this kind of equality, coming from their place in the Catholic-Protestant conflicts of the 16th century.
