Robert Fowler, career diplomat and civil servant, spoke to RMCC Cadets on Wednesday, November 16th as part of the Commandant’s Professional Development Series. Mr. Fowler, who has long worked behind the scenes, became very well known to the public in December 2008 when he and his assistant, fellow Canadian diplomat Louis Guay, were abducted by Al Qaeda. It happened when he was in Niger as a special envoy of the United Nations, charged with getting the rebels and government to agree to peace talks. They were held for four and a half months before being released.
