Hon. Elinor Caplan
Minister of Citizenship and Immigration
Ottawa, Ontario


For enlightening details of my concerns please read the articles in the Wednesday, April 4, 2001 editions of both:
The Globe and Mail, page A11, Ex-SS officer Gets 12 Years, and
National Post, page A3, `Lust For Murder` Nets Nazi 12 Years.

Would you kindly let me know why a Canadian citizen, the 75-year-old retired economics professor from Montreal`s Concordia University, Adalbert Lallier, is not scheduled for deportation from Canada, and another Canadian citizen Wasyl Odynsky is? Despite the fact that the latter was found by Hon. Judge Andrew MacKay to be innocent of any crimes (allegedly commited by Nazi units of which he was an involuntary member), while Adalbert Lallier unabashedly boasts that:

1. During WW2 he was an SS-officer cadet.
2. He admitted his Nazi past to the Canadian authorities when emigrating to Canada.
3. He was a sole eye-witness to the shooting in 1945 of the 7 concentration camp prisoners by his superior comrade in arms, but hid this dark secret from everybody.
4. His loyalty to his fellow SS-men, strange as it seems, kept him muzzled for more than half a century! In my humble opinion, a crime not lesser than the shootings themselves!

Isn`t it obvious, madam, that this Hungarian-born Nazi did everything imaginable during the WW2 to disqualify himself from ever becoming a Canadian citizen?

Why is he, then, still in Canada and the innocent Canadian Wasyl Odynsky is facing deportation? Is it due to pressures of some special interest groups which (and not your Ministry!) determine who is and who isn`t Canadian citizen? Are there possibly some quid pro quo arrangements between your Government and other countries whereby these bizzare immigration laws are enacted? Indeed, why are you harming Canada by being perhaps "politically correct" but factually and morally wrong? Dead wrong!

Pray, do let me know real soon where I stand, so that I can safely return to a real world.

Thank you,

Myroslaw Prytulak
