Peter Goldring, Member of Parliament for Edmonton East, returns to Edmonton tonight after serving as an election monitor for the February 7 presidential election in Ukraine.
Mr. Goldring observed 11 polls in the Donetsk area in eastern Ukraine near the Russian border.
“The legacy of the Orange Revolution, the free expression of democratic will, was demonstrated fully at the many polls I visited. Ukrainians I spoke with on election day were confident this was a free and fair election,” Mr. Goldring says.
Mr. Goldring arrives at Edmonton International Airport at 12:57 a.m. February 10 aboard Air Canada flight AC 135 and will be available to the media at that time.
