Once a year, country comes to the city. That is the slogan of the annual Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto. The Coliseum with the adjoining National Trade Centre is holding the most interesting events including the famous Horse Show, the Agricultural Show, shows with dogs and of course a horse rodeo, dressage, jumping, shopping galore and much more. There even is a wine museum and everything else one could learn about wine, including how to chose fine wine and how to cook with wine. The fun for young and old starts at November 7th and lasts to the 16th. More info at www.royalfair.org.

The National Ethnic Press Council held an all day conference with members of the media and the government. The German Canadian publications were represented with the publishers of the Neuschottlaendische Bote, German Business and Trade Publication, Das Echo and Echo Germanica.

The German contingent

Many interesting problems came up and some of them resolutions were formed for. After this meeting the ethnic press is no doubt somewhat more cohesive than it was before. Amazing was the cooperation of the government. The Ministry for Heritage is fully engaged in the dialogue and supportive of the aims of the National Ethnic Press Council. To read more on the conference go to the following website and follow the links to the council’s site, hosted by: www.patrides.ca
