A small blog, by John Leeson & Oksana Kuryliw. These pages were first set up in February, 2013, but updates have been few, and (mostly) long ago. Stand by… one of these days that will change!
We have however completed a documentary about Oksana’s father, Chapters and Verses: Action Bill’s Walk Through Life. It premiered in September, 2017, and has been shown several times in Toronto, Sudbury and Edmonton. A Ukrainian-language version is in the works. See chaptersandverses.ca
We can be reached by email at email@example.com
See our Blog pages for new posts about… things. Recent posts are listed in the upper right.
