The Suomi-Koti event a landmark in the cohesion of the Finnish Canadian scene

Listening to Megan Leslie and reviewing the large audience at the Suomi-Koti Charity Dinner on Friday (Oct 26), I ended up thinking that this was actually a major landmark in the restoration of Finnish Canadian cohesion (lost in 1931), comparable to the arranging the suurjuhlat evening banquet at the Wanup Hall some years ago. - I recall when Megan Leslie was elected in 2008 some Finnish Canadians did not want to combine the concepts of "Finnish Canadian" and "NDP". Through that Suomi-Koti charitable event Sirkka Suvilaakso (Chairperson of the Board) and Juha Mynttinen (CEO) provided a major service to the Finnish Canadian scene. Of course, Megan Leslie gave the 2010 Varpu Lindström lecture, but this Suomi-Koti event crossed "mental border controls" that may have been prejudiced until yesterday.
