Vabariigi Aastapäev 2010

March 1, 2010

VA 2010 Ottawas

The Ottawa Estonian  Society celebrated Independence Day on Sunday February 28, 2010 at the Peace Latvian Lutheran Church with a “pot luck” late afternoon lunch. Attendance was down a bit this year because of the ongoing hockey match between Canada and the United States.  About 30 people attended.There were no long winded aktus style patriotic speeches nor was there a man of the cloth present to say grace but nobody seemed disappointed by this and everyone enjoyed themselves in the friendly relaxed atmosphere. After singing the Estonian national anthem everyone settled down at their table with a plateful of very tasty food to watch a movie named Eestlased Kremilis; NSV Liidu lagunemise lugu ( Estonians in the Kremlin; a tale about the collapse of the Soviet Union). This 2006 film was interesting in that it gave background information about the role the Baltic States and in particular the role that Estonian former high level “comrades” played in the collapse of what was aptly termed the evil empire. What was particularly interesting was that several of these people such as Ruutel ( both president of independant Estonia and former Secretary General of Soviet Estonia), Savisaar (currently mayor of Tallinn) and Lauristan (prominent academic) to name just a few seemd to carry on without missing a step. This obviously demonstrates what a tolerant open minded society present day Estonia is.  Many thanks to the organizers.
