канада таки реальное логово бандеры. потомки укро-наци хранят верность корням, это уже давно не иммигранты, а местные, но взгляды не изменились - впитаны с молоком матери, а оно сладенькое, ага. и все это целенаправлено лоббирует свои интересы во всех ветвях власти, и получается совсем неслабый результат, надо сказать - канада всегда в первых рядах всяческих укро-движух. евреи ведут себя так же, тоже очень давно и мощно лоббируют, и тоже с великолепным результатом по всяким своим вопросам. но у этих двух комьюнити имеются некоторые разногласия по поводу истории. евреи тоже крайне привержены корням и тп, и взгляды тоже меняют неохотно. до сих пор нацистов с той еще войны ловят. а те, как на зло, постоянно оказываются из укров. соответственно отношения с украми конфликтные - но не так чтоб до крику. просто постоянно ябедничают друг на друга, что-то такое химичат.

вот как евреи описывают начало засилия укро-наци в послевоенной канаде. в те времена канадцы евреев вообще не очень любили и не очень к ним прислушивались. украм повезло:

Both communities actively entered the political arena on behalf of their European kin after World War II to convince their government to relax stringent immigration restrictions to permit the entrance of Europe's displaced persons (DPs). Jewish organizations were primarily interested in Holocaust survivors, and Ukrainian groups were concerned about their compatriots who refused repatriation to their Communist-controlled homeland. Both groups were ultimately successful, though in differing degrees. Although most Jewish refugees had immigrated to Israel and elsewhere by the time Canada permitted their entrance and most DP slots were allocated to East Europeans, both European Jews and ethnic Ukrainians were among the displaced persons immigrating to Canada in the late 1940s.

The two Canadian communities first clashed over the issue of Nazi war criminals in connection with the admission of DPs, specifically over the immigration eligibility of members of the Galicia Division, a volunteer Ukrainian unit of the Waffen SS. Like the American Displaced Persons Act, Canadian law prohibited the entrance of Nazi war criminals, including members of the Nazi German armed forces. Members of the Galicia Division were thus denied entrance. Ukrainian Canadians, however, insisted that the division was not a Nazi entity but a nationalist unit of patriots dedicated to the expulsion of Soviet occupiers from their homeland. The Ukrainian Canadian Committee lobbied for their absolution and admission. To Jews, the division was a criminal SS organization responsible for the murder of Jews.

Caught off guard by Ukrainian lobbying and the government's sympathetic response to it, Jewish organizations launched a belated fight to prevent the entrance of division members. They were, however, unable to bear the government-imposed burden of proving that individual members of the division had personally committed atrocities against civilian populations because of race, religion, or national origins. The Ukrainian Canadian Committee was victorious in this first political confrontation; in 1950, the government lifted the ban. The conflict, however, heightened distrust between the two groups. The struggle to expel Nazi war criminals from Canada would create even greater antagonisms, despite periodic efforts of the two groups to reduce tensions.
