  • Visit of the Ambassador of Canada at UD

    The ambassador of Canada gave a lecture at the University of Debrecen. Isabelle Poupart also visited a training of the DEAC ice hokey team, where she met two Canadian players who taught her a few tricks.

    Before meetings with politicians and discussions about the trade relationships between Hungary and Canada, Isabelle Poupart started Wednesday at the ice hokey arena in Debrecen. The Canadian diplomat was received by Lászlóné Lóczi, managing director of DEAC and András Fodor, head of department.

    Before practice, the ambassador exchanged a few words with the two Canadian players, Bronson Kovács and Hugo Turcotte, and then took a few shots at the goal.

    - I like to meet and talk to my compatriots, which is why I visited the ice hockey team. Canadians like sports, especially winter sports. I myself skate and ski, and today I have learned about the basics of ice hockey – said Isabelle Poupart.

    Following the sports programme, the ambassador gave a lecture entitled "Canadian Dream" at UD at the invitation of the Faculty of Humanities. Among other things, Isabelle Poupart talked to students and lecturers about the values Canada represents and the challenges her country is facing, including the way they treat aboriginals.

    Owing to the embassy, students could enjoy an exhibition in the corridor of the Institute of English and American Studies entitled "Hungarian Exodus: Hungarians in Canada following '56". The ambassador pointed out that after the revolution in 1956, Canada received 37,000 Hungarian refugees. Today over 340,000 Hungarians live in the country. Their community has been fully integrated in Canadian society.
