Zuzak GRC Report; Wed., Dec. 05, 2006

(1) Dual Citizenship: In response to an news article in which Citizenship and Immigration Minister Monte Solberg criticized dual citizens from Lebanon, “who use Canada as a port in the storm”, I wrote Mr. Solberg indicating my views that no one on this planet should possess dual citizenship (or multiple passports) and that citizenship should not be revocable by the state. This article is archived on my website under Will Zuzak Letters

(2) Denaturalization and Deportation: An editorial in the 15Nov2006 issue of the Ukrainian News titled “National Post promotes Ukrainophobia” blasts a 9Nov2006 article in the National Post by David Matas, who distorts facts in calling for the deportation of Mssrs. Oberlander, Fast, Katriuk, Odynsky, Skomatchuk and Furman. Marco Levytsky concludes his editorial with: “Such bigotry is utterly reprehensible.”

(3) Holodomor: Three articles have been added to this page.
- Eric Margolis highlights the Ukrainian Famine of 1932-33 as amongst the worst of Stalinist crimes. 

- Roman Serbyn in AUR#791 details the Ukrainian famines of 1921-23, 1932-33 and 1946-47.
“In conclusion, all three famines, ... were the result of Moscow's deliberate diverting of Ukrainian resources to purposes other than the satisfaction of Ukrainian population's hunger.” 

- Oleksandr Kramarenko in AUR#793 credits James Mace for introducing the concept of a "postgenocidal society" into scholarly circulation as a valid explanation of the present situation in Ukraine.
“You will agree that it is difficult to refute Mace's foresight with regard to our postgenocidal society.”

On 28Nov2006 the Verkhovna Rada passed a Holodomor-Genocide bill. Sadly, only 2 members of the Party of Regions (which Viktor Yanukovich heads) and none of the Communists voted in favor of recognizing the Ukrainian Famine of 1932-33 (Holodomor) as genocide. That the Prime Minister of Ukraine would sanction the deliberate starvation of millions of Ukrainians and refuse to acknowledge their
deaths is unacceptable.

(4) Ed Stelmach, Premier of Alberta; Stephane Dion, Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada: On 02Dec2006, in a double whammy to the political elite in Canada, Albertans and Canadian Liberals rejected the establishment candidates and elected independent underdogs. Fed up with domination by the Calgary political and business elite, Northern Albertans, Edmontonians and the rural farming communities voted overwhelmingly for nice guy “Steady Eddy” (of Ukrainian origin) to replace Ralph Klein as their Premier.

On the federal scene, fourth place candidate, Stephane Dion, combined with Gerard Kennedy (with Ukrainian roots on his mother’s side) to capture the Liberal leadership on the fourth ballot against favourites Michael Ignatieff and Bob Rae.
