Kenney Interview on KONTAKT

Privet! or Dobrijden'!
These are greetings of welcome among Ukrainian and Western Canadians. And they are open opportunities to conversation about (among other realities) one's experiences with language, culture, religion, community values, volunteerism, services, employment, new social circumstances - all because of a life decision to make a change. Establishing oneself economically, socially, culturally, sometimes a person is glad to tap into the experiences of the Ukrainian Canadian community. There is much to learn, on both sides of the equation.

The Ukrainian Canadian television show KONTAKT recently aired an interview with Jason Kenney, the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism. The program contains some very valuable information about our Canadian government's role in making the world a better place for everyone.

Canadian democracy is a participation sport, it is the citizen's responsibility to be the change we hope to see in the world - speaking truth to issues. I hope you will take a moment to view the interview, and take an active role in Canada's future.
