On 5 March Ambassador Kārlis Eihenbaums and his wife Ināra Eihenbauma were honoured to meet the Canadian women veterans at the Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre in Ottawa for the High Tea in celebration of the International Women's Day. During the event, Ambassador also met with Jody Thomas, Deputy Minister of National Defence, and Major (Ret'd) Sandra Perron, Veteran and Author.

Ambassador's participation at the event was a strong signal of the solidarity we all feel for the people who served our countries in keeping our values high in defence of democracy and respect to our freedom. It is especially important now when there is the danger of politics being driven by passion that is disconnected from and ignorant of facts.
