Yes, good point. Also, they came from a country viewed as the red menace. Numerous Ukrainians, Polish and other Slavic people in Canada and the U.S. hated Russians. Plus, they came to N.A. often knowing no English and experienced all this freedom they once never had, perhaps waiting for someone to tell them what to do. I could go on and on about cultural adjustments.
