With much sadness, World Federalists across Canada mourn the death December 7 of Warren Allmand.
Mr. Allmand served as National President of the World Federalist Movement – Canada (WFMC) from 2004 to August 2016.
Warren first joined the World Federalists in 1961. The need for a more just and democratically accountable framework of global governance, one that upheld universal human rights and the rule of law, was integral to his world view throughout his 32-year career in Parliament and after, when he was a leading member of a number of Canadian civil society organizations.
Warrren’s contributions to the World Federalists were numerous and substantial. He was a diligent, “hands-on” President, whose political judgment and reputation benefitted the organization considerably.
A tribute video honouring Warren was presented at the August 2016 WFMC national meeting.
One of Canada’s leading human rights experts and campaigners, Warren not only understood, but lived by and upheld the dignity and freedom of world citizens everywhere. We will miss his wisdom, camaraderie and commitment.
