David Climenhaga dissects Alexander's speech here and links to the entire Ukrainian Canadian Congress event but I thought I'd extract Alexander's remarks for posterity.
Alexander is particularly outraged about any mention that Ukraine might have a neo-Nazi problem, which he blames on :
"dangerous ideology. Which is present in our own city of Toronto! Which is present across Canada! Which comes to us through state-sponsored Russian channels that are preaching absolute poison."
while evidently being unaware Canada has a Right Sector chapter of its very own.
Perhaps he'd rather hear about it from the BBC :
or the Ukrainian ambassador to Germany last month :
"Alexander was followed as speaker by Andriy Parubiy, deputy chairperson of the Ukrainian parliament and founder in 1991 of that country's evocatively named Social-National Party, which the Wikipedia describes as having "combined radical nationalism and neo-Nazi features" before changing its name to Svoboda ("Freedom") in 2004.In his speech Mr Parubiy said his fighters in Ukraine are standing for the entire civilized world.
He says "Canada has an “authoritative voice” on the conflict in eastern Ukraine and could help persuade the United States to send lethal weapons to Ukraine."
"This is going to be a great struggle," said Alexander, " We are just at the beginning of this struggle."
