The man behind LusoCanada.com is Paulo Pereira. He has been a friend of mine and more importantly a friend of the Portuguese community for a very long time. In one of his many visits to our Centre we discussed his website and the positive affect it will have on Luso Canadians. Below is today’s blog entry written by Paulo himself (in portuguese and english) explaining exactly what LusoCanada.com is and where it’s going.
