  1. Proud and worthy

    I wish you all the best. I am proud to know that we will definitely achieve to have Armenian Candidates elected in Ontario or anywhere in the world. I live in Sydney, Australia and I am very proud to have our Gladys Berejiklian for the 1st time in Australian Government as PREMIER of NSW.

    Go Armenians and prove the world we are great citizens of any country we chose to settle; we are proud and worthy individuals.
