(Excerpt):


This was…this was freelance…Over there I have a big board of all of those people who worked and wanted to get information about….This all started when Holos Ukrainy [Voice of Ukraine] from Ukraine wanted someone here in Parliament who would know things. They wrote to the Parliamentary Gallery saying that they wanted me for this. I was accepted and then Noviy Shliakh [New Pathway], Ukrainian Svoboda and all those…and I went there and I had there…I didn’t come for the whole day, I came only for some time. And all things…they brought everything that was happening that day, they’d bring it and give it to each freelance person who was working. And I would come and deliver the news. Edmonton really wanted the news because it was far for them to get to Parliament. Svoboda was the same, as well as Holos Ukrainy. They didn’t always like me because I didn’t write how they wanted really. Nonetheless, it was really interesting to work there.
