Senator Andreychuk awarded the Gold Award of Merit by the Estonian Central Council in Canada

On February 24, 2018, Senator A. Raynell Andreychuk was presented the Gold Award of Merit by the Estonian Central Council in Canada

“The Estonian community in Canada is thankful for the open door that Senator Andreychuk has always offered for our communities, and specifically for organizing and hosting countless Baltic Nights on Parliament Hill”, said Council President Marcus Kolga. “Most recently, the Senator took the legislative lead in introducing and unanimously passing Canada’s global human rights Magnitsky law this past October.”

Mr. Kolga, who presented the award at a celebration marking Estonian Independence Day in Toronto, went on to highlight Senator Andreychuk’s lifelong commitment to the defence of democracy and freedom in the Baltic states and Europe.

“I was privileged to work with the Estonian community in Canada on their many achievements and am deeply honoured to receive the Gold Award of Merit,” said Senator Andreychuk. “The timing is particularly meaningful as we gather to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Estonian independence.”
