OD WYDAWNICTWA

Oddajac w rece Czytelnikow prace dr Aleksandry Ziolkowskiej pt "Senator Haidasz", pragniemy ta ksiazka zainaugurowac cykl stalych wydawnictw poswieconych problematyce wychodzstwa polskiego w Kanadzie. (...) CENTURY PUBLISHING COMPANY LTD.

Ma ujmujacy sposob zachowania, jest spokojny, uprzejmy i goscinny. Nie przedstawia obrazu polityka zabieganego, b1yszczacego, blyskotliwe go. Ma czas dla ludzi. Jest senatorem, lekarzem. Ludzie przychodza do niego od ponad trzydziestu lat. Prosza o pomoc. I ja przyszlam po pomoc - bym mogla napisac o losach grupy polskiej w Kanadzie i o nim, ktory jest tej spolecznosci polonijnej wyrazem, sukcesem, osiagnieciem. Jest jej przedstawicielem. Udzielil mi pomocy w kazdym zakresie - od danych liczbowych, poprzez lektury, az poswiecenie mi czasu na rozmowy. Za cierpliwosc, za nienarzucanie mi gotowych obrazow minionych lat, zostawienie mi swobody w interpretacji zdarzen jestern mu bardzo wdzieczna. I cenie to sobie.

Senatorowi Haidaszowi i wszystkim tym, ktorzy nie odmowili mi swego czasu na rozmowe o nim i o tych latach - serdecznie dziekuje. -Aleksandra Ziolkowska
