Ivan Nehrych, editor of the first Ukrainian newspaper in Canada, "Kanadiysky Farmar" (Canadian Farmer). The first issue of "Kanadiysky Farmar" came out November 3, 1903, in Winnipeg. It was a big event in the life of the Ukrainian community. The paper carried articles discussing the vital problems of farmers and workers and defended their interests.
Dr. Oleskiw played a very important role in directing the flow of Ukrainian emigration from Halychyna and Bukovina to Canada, rather than to Brazil. He visited Canada, surveyed the situation, discussed the matter with members of the Canadian government, and went back to inform and advise those of his countrymen planning to emigrate.
