On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Toronto Estonian Scouting Sponsors Association ("TESS") -- a not-for-profit "public benefit" corporation that has been serving the Estonian-Canadian community since 1954, we wish to make it clear that the open letter to National Estonian Foundation of Canada ("ESK") and chat room commentaries thereunder, published by Mr. Tonu Naelapea, who is an executive member of our board, are his own personal opinions only.
Those commentaries and opinions in no way represent or reflect the corporate views of TESS, its board of directors, its members or those of any of the organizations or activities that we sponsor.
TESS also acknowledges that the funding application submitted to ESK did not include the requested budget details and recognizes that this limited their ability to deal with the application.
From its inception in 1974 onwards, ESK and TESS enjoyed close co-operation and collaboration on a number of projects beneficial to our community and ESK has been a strong supporter of the scouting and guiding programs that TESS also supports. We have nothing but the highest respect for ESK, its directors, members and employees and their standards of governance and administration. We regret any impacts that recently expressed personal opinions may have had on this relationship and sincerely hope that our Boards can continue to work together to support the future of the Estonian community.
per Mart Pikkov, President and Robert Kivi, Vice-President
