A recent exclusive in the Washington Post exposes the fundamental error at the heart of the West’s policy towards Russia. Russia continues to divide Europe and the world into spheres of influence, through an active hybrid war which masterfully utilizes manipulation of the media, influencing politicians, economic blackmail and military aggression in order to secure itself an outsized influence on global events. The Post’s reporting shows a U.S. presidential administration paralyzed into inaction by fear of “escalation” or “provocation.” It shows an American president seemingly unaware of a basic truth: Vladimir Putin needs no provocation. Not to...

Why did Ukrainians choose to move to Hamilton, Ontario? What connections lay in the manufacturing city, spread out on the shores of Lake Ontario? How did these Ukrainians create a thriving Ukrainian community in a city tucked between Toronto and Niagara Falls? These are some of the questions being asked by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Hamilton Branch. Mary Holadyk created the “A Ukrainian Canadian Tapestry” project from funds provided by the City of Hamilton’s Canada 150 grants in order to capture the stories of Ukrainians in Hamilton. Mrs. Holadyk wants to gather as many short family histories as possible to showcase the growth of a people and the growth of a community. It is, above all, a project to see how a community with roots in Ukraine managed to establish itself and...

Anniversaries are a good time for reflection, and as we celebrate the 150th. anniversary of Confederation, we should remind ourselves just how fortunate we are to live in Canada. For Ukrainian immigrants, Canada turned out to be the “promised land”, although not without some dark days in the early years of settlement in Canada. Hardship, internment and discrimination were eventually overcome and Kiriak’s, “Sons of the Soil” became Slavutych’s, “Conquerors of the Prairies” and were fully integrated into Canadian society. Ukrainian Canadians have played an important role in Canada’s development over the 125 years since Ukrainians first came to Canada: in agriculture, in politics at all levels, in the military, in business and the professions, in education and in all walks of life...
