the Prime Minister of Canada, Lester B. Pearson condemned British acceptance of the Unilateral Declaration of Independence by Rhodesia. Pearson had boldy formulated a draft resolution committing Wilson to NIBMAR
. Pearson later recalled, 'I wasn't sure whether I was being asked to commit polygamy or incest, but whatever it was, I did it.' Wilson refused to commit, and continued to extend offers to Ian Smith which came considerably short of NIBMAR, offers which Smith ultimately acquised to for the sake of 'kith and kin'.
