Ryszard Paszkowski receives Canadian Citizenship
(exerts from his thank you to David Kilgour)
July 16, 2004
"Thirteen years ago, I met David Kilgour at his office while I
was desperately searching for justice. At
the time, many turned their backs from me and my problems.
Many were just afraid to associate with me, simply because my case was
“politically incorrect”. My case was about my fight against the Federal Government of
Canada. According to the
government, I should be deported out of this country immediately. I should be deported, because I knew too much about the wrong
doings of some of the governmental agencies.
Today, as I become a Canadian citizen and after so many
years, I don’t have to look around my shoulder any more for fear of being
deported (it would be tough to get used to it), I would like to thank David for
those years of his support and friendship.
My case has shown that David’s stand for humanitarian issues and
injustice was right and I am convinced that David will do it again and again for
everyone in similar situation.
Thanks to David, my case has proven that our fight was just
and proper. Thanks to David, our
family survived in unity and my children have a father.
To me it doesn’t matter what political party David
represents. Canada needs more
Once again, thank you David!
