Where I dissent from Sun Media is its focus on my sister Gail as the demon of the museum project. Recently, the Ukrainian Canadian Civil Liberties Association (UCCLA) redoubled its efforts to do the same thing by launching a postcard campaign opposing further funding for the museum. On the face of the postcard is a picture of my sister and Sun Media gave play to the story.

The project was led by the private sector and a total of over $130 million has been raised, which again is unprecedented in Canadian history. No Canadian federal museum has ever received this kind of support from private donors.

As most people know, my father conceived of the museum project. After his death, my sister carried the torch in order to get the job finished.

Demonizing her for the issues facing the museum is wrong and unfair. Regardless of individual views about the validity of the museum, that bridge has been Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 37.5mm

Sun Media has given particular voice to those who oppose a variety of aspects about the museum. Sun Media doesn like the project, which is completely within its editorial prerogative, and its coverage therefore is tilted in that direction. I have no problem with a newspaper adopting an editorial position and sticking with it. Indeed, I think such an editorial strategy is what kept the National Post in business while Omega Speedmaster Automatic Reduced I was its Chairman, so I don take issue with the Sun editorial choices at all.
