 MSN Encarta - <b>Lesterb> Pearson
In 1956 Pearson initiated the resolution that terminated the conflict between the Egyptian government and the French and British governments over the Suez Canal, and sent a UN police force to restore peace to the Gaza Strip, an area then under Egyptian control from which terrorist attacks on Israel were being staged.
In 1943 Pearson served as a delegate to several conferences and planning sessions of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, a forerunner of the United Nations (UN), an international organization established to maintain peace and security, and as chairman of its supplies committee, which undertook emergency feeding and refugee programs in troubled areas.
From 1948 to 1956, he was head of the permanent Canadian mission to the UN, and during the 1952-1953 UN session, Pearson was president of the General Assembly, the representative body of the UN.

 <b>LESTERb> B. PEARSON - 7th Session
<b>LESTERb> B. ("Mike") Pearson became President of the General Assembly seventh session by the choice of 51 of the 60 Member states.
Pearson had been the chief civil servant in the Department of External Affairs for two years when, in 1948, he was summoned by his Prime Minister to head the Departmeat on the elected cabinet level.
Pearson recalled an aspect of his career which gives to the new President of the General Assembly a rather unusual distinction-his long record as a civil servant before he became a Foreign Minister-when he said that, as one who had worked on secretarials.

 Departmental History
Pearson's action reflected his approach during the earlier Korean War: in both cases he had tried to dissuade the Americans from escalating a regional conflict into a far more serious crisis.
Ironically, Pearson's success in resolving the Suez crisis was a liability with the voters, alienating those who felt that Canada should have stood by Mother England, right or wrong.
The nadir was reached in April 1965, after Pearson used a speech in Philadelphia to openly call for a pause in the American bombing of North Vietnam.

 MSN Encarta - Print Preview - <b>Lesterb> Pearson
Pearson meant the meeting to be conciliatory and to make up for the anti-U.S. feeling that had been expressed in the Canadian elections.
It was presented in June, before Pearson had the opportunity to evaluate it, and during the ensuing political uproar he was forced to repudiate the unpopular measure.
In the second year of the Pearson minority government there was a further decentralization of federal power, with more administrative authority being transferred to the provinces.

 Dale On <b>Lesterb> (“Mike”) Pearson of Canada (II)
An important motive underlying Pearson’s choice of a purely Canadian flag, the social legislation, and a Royal Commission on bilingualism and biculturalism was to meet the desires of French Canadians and counter the growing nationalism of Quebec Province.
Pearson’s second term as prime minister, beginning in 1965, was not as productive as his first.
Diplomacy and domestic politics required Pearson to invite De Gaulle to visit Canada and the resulting trip was a thorough disaster from the former’s point of view.

 The Worldly Years: The Life of <b>Lesterb> Pearson, vol. 2: 1949-1972. by Allen Mills
Such were his absences abroad that when he became minister of external affairs in 1948, <b>Lesterb> Pearson had had little recent contact with his homeland.
As a manager of the government, Pearson was a disaster: failing to defend his ministers, interfering behind their backs, and often dithering, especially on Quebec.
Thus, English avers, Pearson was in foreign-policy matters a bit of a liberal idealist (as Trudeau has been portrayed in recent revised versions of his foreign policy).
