"Under Gillian’s leadership a fledgling Keeping the Door Open - Dialogues on Drug Use became the vehicle to facilitate public dialogue on drug policy in Vancouver. Gillian is the epitome of strategic creative thinking and in the process warm and empathetic. Over a ten-year period I had the greatest pleasure working with Gillian to create these dialogues."

    At the end of the talk someone from the audience asked the Dalai Lama, "Why didn't you fight back against the Chinese?" The Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, "Well, war is obsolete, you know." Then, after a few moments, his face grave, he said, "Of course the mind can rationalise fighting back... but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you."
