SUBJECT: GLOBAL INITIATIVE: POLDIR TO LEAD CANADIAN DEL TO
RABAT, DG TO BRIEF

REF: STATE 173436

1. (SBU) We joined our Russian counterpart to convey reftel
to Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade
(DFAIT) Deputy Director for International Nuclear
Cooperation, Compliance and Export Control Shawn Caza, and
Senior Adviser Janice Fitchett. Caza reaffirmed earlier word
that DFAIT Assistant Deputy Minister and PolDir Colleen
Swords would lead the Canadian delegation to the GI/CNT
conference in Rabat.

2. (SBU) Caza said that the Canadians would not meet the
October 18 deadline to submit their expert level briefing on
the safe transportation of nuclear materials. He noted,
however, that Director General Troy Lulyshanyk planned to
deliver a presentation on day two of the Rabat conference
entitled "Canada's Global Partnership Program on Preventing
Nuclear and Radiological Terrorism Domestically and
Internationally." This briefing would last 20-minutes, would
include Microsoft Power-point slides, and could easily be
extended at our request.

3. (SBU) Caza noted that his Director, Mark Gwozdecky, would
double-track this information via telephone to ISN/WMDT
Director Thomas Lehrman.
