Continuing its campaign to rid Canada of any and all veterans of the Soviet secret police - the NKVD, SMERSH and KGB - the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association (UCCLA) is contacting MPs, Senators, and other Canadians, reminding them of the presence in Canada of veterans of the Communist political police, responsible for the murder, torture, and enslavement of millions of east Europeans, many of whom subsequently found asylum in Canada.
"We are calling upon the Prime Minister of Canada, the Minister of Public Safety, the Minister of Justice, and other Canadian officials, asking them to remove any veterans of the Soviet secret police found in this country. In particular we are drawing attention, again, to the continued presence in Canada of an (ex) KGB captain whose deportation was ordered by a Federal Court judge over three years ago. The fact that he remains here calls into question the integrity, fairness, and public confidence in Canada's system of immigration control," said UCCLA's chair, Roman Zakaluzny.
