The annual commemoration of the United Nations is an important occasion. Why? Because, with all of its flaws and problems, the United Nations remains the only international institution of world governance, with the majority of the countries of the world as its 192 members.

Since the first year after its formation in 1948, the anniversary of the UN charter has been celebrated. It has traditionally been marked throughout the world by meetings, discussions and exhibits on its achievements and goals.

In the Hamilton area this year, as in many past, Aghdas Javid invited residents to join her celebration of the 61st anniversary of the UN charter.
