Toronto CFF managed to attract attention to the Honorary Consuls issue

An initiative by the Toronto CFF about the quality and functions of Finnish Honorary Consuls has triggered a resolution by the Expatriate Parliament (USP), in its plenary in Helsinki on Oct 25-27. The resolution underlines knowledge of Finland and Finnish affairs, as qualifications of a would-be Honorary Consul. Drafted originally by Bill Holt, the resolution proves that grass-roots action by expatriate Finns can lead to results, even at the Finnish end. - The Ministry has, of course, found a great way of augmenting the Finnish diplomatic presence in Toronto, through the appointment of Laura McSwiggan as an Honorary Vice Consul. -Many Honorary Consuls have been great successes though. I should single out Judy Romanchuk in Calgary (chosen by, I think, Ossi Sunell in the early 80s). Romanchuk has shown well-focussed interest in Finland and has found time to participate in events from high-end business meetings to tango evenings by Eino Grön.
