UCPBA Address at the Roast
Skyline Hotel Ottawa, Canada Saturday, 28 October, 1978
Dear Senator Yuzyk
It is with great pleasure that the Ukrainian Professional and
Business Association of Ottawa takes this opportunity to honour you on
this 15th Anniversary of your appointment to the
Senate of Canada.
As an educator, soldier, community leader and statesman - your
contributions are varied and distinguished. Canadians of Ukrainian and
other backgrounds have taken great pride in sharing the wealth of
knowledge and expertise generated throughout your research and pedagogical
teaching in Eastern European and Canadian histories. As Canada's first
advocate of the principles of multi-culturalism, you have promoted the
recognition of equal opportunities for all Canadians and the respect for
human rights and freedoms throughout the world.
Your dedication to your family-your wife Mary, and children,
Evangeline, Victoria, Vera and Theodore, remain a model for all to admire
and emulate. Senator, due to your great effort and achievements, and your
undeniable sense of humour, we trust that you will enjoy this Testimonial
Roast, with us, your friends and admirers, and that this booklet,
dedicated to your illustrious achievements, will be a fitting memento of
our appreciation of your sevice to your fellowmen.
Ukrainian Professional and Business Association
