Tusk was supposed to have visited Canada in April 2010
Visiting Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk on Sunday said he was proud to find another Wilno, settled by Canada's first Polish immigrants, on pine-covered hills east of cheap louis vuitton sunglasses Ottawa. Locals are largely descended from immigrants from the Kaszuby region of northern Poland from which the prime minister himself hails. They gave him a warm welcome at St. Stanislas Church. But it sharply contrasted with the reception he was given by demonstrators who came in from Toronto and Ottawa to protest what they see as Warsaw's siding with Moscow on dropping the investigation of the air disaster in Russia in which Polish president Lech Kaczynski and many others were killed. "It is a Russian-Polish conspiracy," louis vuitton earrings insisted Witold Szalankiewicz, a Pole who has been living in Ottawa for about two decades. Nationalists accuse Russian authorities and Tusk's liberal government of being responsible for the crash, going as far as suggesting an assassination to explain the accident of April 10, 2010. In a report published last August, Polish investigators said that the blame for the accident that killed Kaczynski and 95 others lay largely on the Polish side. The government at the same time announced a wave of burberry handbags outlet dismissals among army officials responsible for training in the Polish airforce. The Tupolev 154 plane carrying Kaczynski, his wife and scores of Poland's leaders crashed during an attempt to land at the fog-veiled Smolensk airport in western Russia. The Kaczynski-led delegation had been on its way to Katyn to commemorate the 70th anniversary of a massacre of thousands of Polish officers by the Soviet secret police during World War II. Tusk was supposed to have visited Canada in April 2010, but he was forced to cancel his plans at the last minute when Kaczynski and several Polish officials perished in an air crash in Smolensk. Poland is one of Canada's biggest trading partners in central and eastern Europe, with bilateral imports and exports totaling $1.7 billion. Canada is also home to burberry belts on sale nearly one million citizens of Polish origin. Besides Ottawa, Tusk will be visiting the Quadra copper mine in Sudbury, northern Ontario, acquired by the Polish mining group KGHM in March for $2.9 billion.
