Now, I feel, is the right time to revive my “Westcoast German News”, so I can inform the German-speaking community on the Westcoast of Canada and Alberta about any changes since my last edition was published in October, 2010. Here are a few updates. The Canadian GermanChamber of Commerce has sadly closed their Vancouver office in December 2012! The Swiss are organizing “Swiss100Canada”, in 2013 to celebrate their centennial anniversary of relations between Switzerland & Western Canada. The Austrian “Johann Strauss Foundation” will be holding their 38th ball on February 2nd, 2013 in Edmonton, AB.
Exciting news is that the European Festival has expanded to a two-day event on May 25th and 26th.
