Canadian Ethnocultural Council Extends Condolences
on Death of Dan Iannuzzi

Ottawa, November 23, 2004

The Canadian Ethnocultural Council (CEC) extends deepest condolences to the family and friends of Dan Iannuzzi.

"On behalf of the Council, I also express my deepest sympathy for the loss of an outstanding Canadian who was very much in touch with his Italian heritage as an integral part of his own Canadian sense of being. He knew the value of living in a multicultural Canada with all the richness that Canada's cultural diversity had to offer", said Oleh Romaniw, President of the Canadian Ethnocultural Council.

"Mr Iannuzzi had a remarkable ability to see well beyond our time, the creation of CFMT-TV in the 1970's for example, is a testament to his creative legacy. He saw Canada's many cultural communities as a rich and unifying resource, that defined us as a Multicultural nation", concluded Mr. Romaniw.
