Secretary of State Kenney Attends Work Research Foundation Presentation About Vimy Ridge

MOUNT HOPE, Ontario, November 8, 2007 -- The Honourable Jason Kenney, Secretary of State (Multiculturalism and Canadian Identity), will attend tomorrow the Work Research Foundation's presentation "Leadership Lessons From Vimy Ridge" at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.

As part of Veterans' Week, the presentation will deliver a message about Canada's historic role in World War I's Battle of Vimy Ridge and honour the Canadians involved in that battle.

"The Government of Canada remembers and honours the achievements of the extraordinary men and women who have served and are serving Canada," said Secretary of State Kenney. "I am pleased to attend this presentation and I commend the Work Research Foundation on its efforts to commemorate the sacrifices and achievements of our veterans and to help Canadians draw leadership lessons from the Battle of Vimy Ridge."

"Secretary of State Jason Kenney speaks and thinks with a powerful knowledge of history framing his words. He not only honours the courage and sacrifice of our Canadian soldiers, but he honours the great ideas of history that we seek to protect and for which Canadian men and women have given their lives," said Michael Van Pelt, President of the Work Research Foundation.

The Work Research Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation that was incorporated in 1974 with a mission to advance a Christian view of work, civic society, and public life. The foundation functions as a research organization and think-tank focussing on productivity and work relationships.

Their 'Christian' views are those of Calvinist protestant sect; the Christian Reformed Church in Canada for whom both organizations are front groups.

They are ideologically right wing and organizers have been active in the Reform party as well as the Conservative Party. They are avowedly anti-Social Democrat and pro right to work.
