Metropolitan-Elect Yurij of Winnipeg

I'm not entirely sure how I missed this (church geek that I am), but yesterday Archbishop Yurij of Toronto and Eastern Canada (pictured) was elected Metropolitan of Winnipeg and All Canada and First Hierarch of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada (UOCC)! The current first hierarch, Metropolitan John, has been having health issues for some time and in light of this the election of a new first hierarch was planned for the ongoing UOCC council in Winnipeg. (The UOCC's official website seems to be devoted to the council for the time being.) Regardless, God grant Metropolitan-elect Yurij many years!
