The League of Ukrainian Canadians asks you to sign their petition, called "Support Bill C-450 on Recognizing the Holodomor as Genocide."
This Private Members Bill was presented in the House of Commons on June 6 by Borys Wrzesnewskyj, MP for Etobicoke Centre.
The purpose of the Bill is to establish the fourth Saturday in November as a day of remembrance for the estimated seven million to ten million Ukrainians [who were starved to death in 1932-33] by the Soviet regime under Stalin. ...
Part of the Soviet strategy also involved suppressing, distorting and wiping out all information about the Ukrainian famine, now and into the future to be known as the Holodomor-Genocide.
By enacting this legislation ... Canada will reaffirm her core values of defending human rights and condemning ... genocide.
