Russian Canadians remember well their culture and roots


Russian compatriots from Canada promote Russian culture and Russian language with a great enthusiasm last years. In the TASS interview the head of the Coordinating Council of Russian Compatriots of Canada Natalia Taryshkina has advised that preserving Russian culture and language as well as creating a positive image of our country is the main goal of the organization. 
There are various ways to preserve the culture, and one of them is organizing Russian balls where people of local and Russian community could meet to acknowledge Russian culture in the best way, advised the head of KSORS.  

Just recently one of those balls took place in Montreal. At the end of March one more event called The Revival of Traditions is planned in Vancouver. The action “Immortal Regiment” will go around several Canadian cities to mark the Victory Day. It will be one of the most important events of this year. Only two years ago people were marching in Toronto, Montreal and Calgari. This year participants from Vancouver and Winnipeg will join in. 

The total number of Russian Canadians counts to half a million people.
