    Ambassador Ron Hoffman – two decades of service

    July 25th, 2012

    Ambassador Ron Hoffmann has spent two decades in government service. If you want a crash course on how government works, there probably isn’t a better man to ask. Starting out as a parliamentary intern, he has now had six foreign postings, including ambassadorships to Afghanistan and Thailand as well as being Canada’s Senior Trade Commissioner in South Africa, Canada’s Commercial Counsellor in China and our Minister for Political Affairs and Public Diplomacy in the UK. One of his goals while stationed in Bangkok is to increase Canada’s profile. He says its an exciting period to be in Asia given Prime Minister Harper’s personal commitment to the region, illustrated by the recent high profile visits to China, India and to APEC in Singapore. Hoffmann explains that the Harper government clearly understands the importance of Southeast Asia to Canadian interests and values, and that he has been sent to the region to be an activist Ambassador. …[Read More]

    July 25th, 2012

    That might seem like an innocuous expression to most, but it was those very words that made a 13-year-old Alex Mavro determined to speak Thai. He had been in Bangkok for eighteen months and had refused to learn Thai, longing to return to Vietnam, a country that enchanted him. But when his buddy named David Morris recognized those words while the two were waiting to buy popcorn at a kiosk in the parking lot of the Plaza Hotel, Alex chastised himself, saying inwardly “If he can learn this language, so can I.” …[Read More]

    Tree Planting in Nong Phai

    August 16th, 2011

    On Saturday September 3, three vans, full of TCCC members and friends, left Mechai Viravaidya’s PDA complex on Sukhumvit Soi 12 to plant trees in the village of Baan Nong Phai located in Buriram’s Baan Nong Phai district. Being a Canadian road trip, the first stop was obviously a donut shop, so the vans pulled into a Daddy Dough outlet on Viphavadee Rangsit Road before making the 4-hour trip to Buriram. …[Read More]
