Prime Minister to meet with Ukrainian genocide survivors during Parliament Hill ceremony

Ottawa - Prime Minister Stephen Harper will launch commemorations of the 75th anniversary of the Holodomor - the Ukrainian genocide in Ukraine of 1932-33 during a ceremony on Wednesday, November 28 at 7:30 p.m., Reading Room (Room 237-C, Centre Block). The Prime Minister will join the Ukrainian Canadian Congress, the Canada-Ukraine Parliamentary Group and Ukraine's Embassy in Canada in honouring the victims of the famine, which claimed up to 10 million lives in the very heart of Europe's breadbasket.

Survivors of the Holodomor from the Ottawa region will participate in the ceremony which will include an ecumenical service and presentations by federal party leaders.

Ukrainians in Canada join the international community in commemorating this tragedy to spread the truth about the Holodomor, and ensure acknowledgement of the Holodomor as an act of genocide against the Ukrainian nation. The Ukrainian Canadian Congress calls upon the Government of Canada to be a leader in these efforts and to support Ukraine as it petitions the United Nations to acknowledge the Holodomor as genocide.
