Toronto- Members of the Estonian Central Council in Canada will be participating in the annual World Estonian Council meeting in Tallinn May 3-5, 2018 in Tallinn.
The World Council will be considering policy proposals adopted and first introduced by the Estonian Central Council in Canada, in Fall 2017, urging the Estonian government to improve communications and coordination with the 200 000 Estonians living abroad.
The Estonian Central Council of Canada supports the actions taken by The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, regarding the expulsion and barring of Russian diplomatic staff in response to the nerve agent attack in the United Kingdom. These steps to safeguard our democratic process are a clear indication of Canada’s commitment to freedom, democracy and the rule of law. We will continue to support any action that prevents foreign influence or interference in Canada by Russia or any other nation.
