Diane Francis “Ukraine Optimism”
January 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-6
UCPBA Calgary announces our guest speaker for our January 27, 2022 meeting (to be held virtually): Diane Francis, well-known reporter, commentator, editor, author, and provocative thinker about all things politically and socially pertinent.
While her thoughts on Canada-US relations, the European Union, China/Taiwan, Trudeau, Trump, climate change, etc. have generated great interest and no small measure of discussion and controversy, her analysis and staunch support of Ukraine and Ukrainian-Canadian institutions are of particular interest to the Ukrainian-Canadian community.
For her long-standing interest in, and defence of, Ukraine’s path to freedom, Ms Francis was granted the “Friends of Ukraine” Tryzub Award by the Ukrainian Canadian Foundation of Taras Shevchenko (the “Shevchenko Foundation”) in 2019.
