Rt. Honourable Justin Trudeau Prime Minister of Canada House of Commons
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A6

Dear Prime Minister,

We are writing about a most troubling concern: the war that Russia is escalating in Ukraine with total disregard for international law and opinion of the world.

We are somewhat heartened by the latest sanctions that the United States imposed on Russia, in particular those dealing with banking, and encouraged by Canada’s support. However, we believe that even these increases will not be enough to stop President Vladimir Putin’s criminality. Some twenty years of his disdain for global law and order show that insufficient punishment for his violations only motivates his dictatorial bent to greater evil.

The punishment for his crimes, therefore, must be punitive enough this time to put him on the defensive and submit to law and order.

To this end we put forward for your consideration a bold new initiative of sterner measures intended to resolve Russia’s war in Ukraine and earn a global victory for democracy against President Putin’s dictatorship.

The key elements of the initiative are

Fighting the Covid-19 Pandemic

A worldwide pandemic affecting millions of people has caused hundreds of thousands of deaths. The contagious virus known as COVID-19 causes it. It caused a huge panic and people everywhere were stockpiling essentials like hand sanitizers, toilet paper and even flour. Store shelves were literally empty until limitations on purchases were more controlled.

What happens when you combine an interest in film and writing together with focus and determination?

Mike’s idea for Short Film Fan came to him in the spring of 2014, when he decided that the time was right to create the blog and to share his fascination with this quality film genre with the world. After launching Short Film Fan, Mike briefly wondered if anyone would even want to read articles about Canadian short films. Would the site resonate with the public? In fact, he believed that he would blog about Canadian shorts for about six months, shut it down, and blog about a different topic. Focused on finding good stories and sacrificing many hours of his personal time to write his articles, Mike became pleasantly surprised at what happened to him and Short Film Fan next.

Interview with Winnipeg Realtor Borys Lehkar

1) EZREKLAMA: Greetings Borys. Thank you for meeting with us.  Could you share with our readers something about yourself, and maybe things you enjoy doing in your free time?

1) BORYS: Good day. Certainly. My name is Borys Lehkar. I come from the city of Drohobych in the Lviv region of Ukraine. After graduating from school, I entered the Lviv Technical College of Rural Construction in the Department of Civil and Industrial  Construction. My education, which was the second half of the 1980s, came at a time when the movement for democratic change and protests against the then Soviet system was gaining momentum in Lviv. I tried not to miss any demonstrations. We hung flags, glued posters, and were on duty at the Klumba (flowerbed) now a monument to Shevchenko in Lviv. It was then that I was lucky enough to meet Chornovil, the Horeniv brothers, Helia, the Kalintsy couple, and other dissidents of the time. Lviv, where I had to live a significant part of my life, remains my favorite city to this day. After graduating from college, I started working as a construction foreman, and a few months later I was drafted into the army. 

By the way, the years of my service (1990-1992) coincided with the collapse of the Soviet Empire and Ukraine's independence. It so happened that I took two oaths. The first, to the USSR, and the second to Independent Ukraine. I am especially proud that I had the honor to serve at the time when the Ukrainian Army was born. After demobilization I went to work in business, and then I worked for a construction company as a foreman.
