Dear David:

Once again its Victory In Europe, Plus LXV. As a man of Dutch Heritage myself and with The Netherlands the birthplace of my father Johannes (which proudly is my 2nd name as well) I strongly encourage Alberta Social Studies students continually be taught about the great relationship between Canada & Holland.

My father & our family are dual citizens of Holland and I adore the country so much, I consider it a second home. So please David encourage students to read books on the European Theatre & the great bond that we as Canadians or as the Dutch say "Canadese" have developed since MCMXL (1940.) I encourage Albertan students of Dutch heritage & other ethnic backgrounds to travel to the Netherlands and visit tourist sites and historic monuments, battlefields, and graveyards.

Friesland Forever & The Dutch Are Always In My Heart,

  1. Broadening students' historical and cultural horizons is always a good thing.
