    Ed FastToday, we mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration camp known as Auschwitz-Birkenau. On this sombre occasion, we Canadians remember the profound evil of the Holocaust and collectively recommit ourselves to ensure such atrocities are never repeated. As we honour those who survived this horror, and those who didn't, their shared stories and experiences stand as a stark reminder for us to ever remain vigilant in the battle against intolerance and hatred. I was reminded of this last year when I joined Prime Minister Harper at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem. In the words of Elie Wiesel: “We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.” As we draw inspiration from the remarkable stories of survivors like Elie Wiesel, I join the Prime Minister in reaffirming Canada’s steadfast commitment to combatting anti-Semitism and other forms of racism and bigotry around the world.

    David WilksBack in Ottawa for the start of Parliament. Monday was a pretty slow day as Justice Committee is not sitting until next week. I brought my Red Serge into the lobby and had it hanging their in respect of Cst. David Wynn who's funeral was on Monday. Today I attended at summit on addiction recovery which is near to my heart. This afternoon Health Committee met and we discussed and passed bill C608 to have a day of recognition for midwifes, and started are review of the Statutory review of the Pest Act, which reviews insecticide and pesticide use. Topped off by another win by the Raptors, all is good in the world. Have a great evening!!!

    Kellie LeitchThe Honourable Dr. K. Kellie Leitch today issued the following statement on the death of businessman and philanthropist Joseph L. Rotman: “I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Joseph L. Rotman, a much respected businessman and philanthropist who accomplished a great deal for Canada. He left his mark in the areas of health care, education, and the arts, among others. He received numerous accolades including being an Officer of the Order of Canada and was inducted into the Canadian Business Hall of Fame. “Mr. Rotman was a champion to many Canadians and served as the Chair of the Ontario Brain Institute, co-founded the Medical and Related Sciences Discovery District, and provided support to countless other institutions, several of which now bear his name, such as the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto and the Rotman Institute of Philosophy – Engaging Science at Western University. As a surgeon I got to appreciate firsthand his generosity in advancing both science and medicine. “Joe was a great Canadian who was admired for his contributions to our society. He was a good friend and I wish to offer my deepest condolences to his wife Sandra, and his children Janis and Kenneth, along with all his family and friends during this difficult time.”

    Rona AmbroseI am deeply saddened by the news of the passing of my great friend, philanthropist and health community activist, Joseph Rotman. Mr. Rotman leaves behind an inspiring legacy of developing internationally renowned Canadian healthcare institutions and the establishment of global neuroscience achievements. With a passion for public policy at both the federal and provincial levels, Mr. Rotman assisted in the advancement of Canadian life sciences research, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), and was the Chair of the Ontario Genomics Institute. Mr. Rotman will be graciously remembered for his selfless generosity, his astute intellect, and sincere passion to continue to make Canada a worldwide leader in health. Thank you Joe for always being a champion and leader for Canadian public health and one of my most trusted advisors. You will be missed. http://news.gc.ca/web/article-en.do?mthd=index&crtr.page=1&nid=926169

    Jason Kenney"This poignant day marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi death camp, where more than one million people – most of them Jewish -- were sent to gas chambers and to their agonizing deaths. The horrifying atrocities of the Shoah must never be forgotten. The extent of the cruelty of the Nazis in carrying out their campaign of mass murder is a reminder of the darkness to which humanity can sink, and strengthens our resolve that such atrocities must never happen again. "Six million Jews, including 1.5-million children – one-third of the world's Jewish population at the time – perished in the Holocaust. We remember them, as well as many others who were killed because of their ethnicity, faith, sexual orientation, disabilities, or political views, by vowing to never forget. It is our solemn duty to honour the heroic survivors by teaching future generations their stories and learning the lessons from their experiences. "Canada is proud to be an international leader Holocaust education, remembrance and research. That is why we are pleased to announce that in commemoration of today's 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Canada's Office of Religious Freedom has provided a $100,000 grant to UNESCO's Holocaust education program. "Part of this grant has helped to fund an important Holocaust remembrance event that took place today at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. The remainder will help to fund a follow-up seminar, in partnership with the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, which will help countries around the world to integrate Holocaust education into their educational curricula. "As Minister for Multiculturalism, I encourage all Canadians to remember the victims of the Shoah, to learn about this tragic chapter in world history and to reflect on the dangers of anti-Semitism, for it is through Holocaust education that we give new resolve to the words, ‘never again’." « Cette journée particulièrement émouvante marque le 70e anniversaire de la libération du camp de la mort nazi d'Auschwitz-Birkenau, où plus d'un million de personnes – des Juifs pour la plupart – ont été envoyées dans des chambres à gaz pour y subir une mort horrible. « Nous n'oublierons jamais les évènements horribles de la Shoah. Le degré d'inhumanité dont a fait preuve le régime nazi dans ce massacre nous rappelle jusqu'où l'humanité peut sombrer et renforce notre détermination à éviter que de telles atrocités ne se reproduisent. « Six millions de Juifs, dont 1,5 million d'enfants – soit le tiers de la population juive mondiale à l'époque – ont péri dans l'holocauste. Nous honorons leur mémoire et celle de nombreux autres qui ont péri à cause de leur ethnicité, de leur religion, de leur orientation sexuelle, de leur handicap ou de leur opinion politique et nous nous engageons à ne jamais les oublier. Nous avons le devoir solennel d'honorer les héros survivants en racontant leur histoire aux générations futures et en tirant des enseignements de ce qu'ils ont vécu. « Le Canada est fier d'être un chef de file international en ce qui concerne l'éducation et la recherche sur l'holocauste et la commémoration des évènements qui y sont liés. C'est pourquoi nous sommes heureux d'annoncer qu'en commémoration du 70e anniversaire de la libération du camp d'Auschwitz, le Bureau de la liberté de religion du Canada a accordé une subvention de 100 000 $ au programme de l'éducation sur l'holocauste de l'UNESCO. « Une partie de cette subvention a contribué à financer un important événement de commémoration de l'holocauste qui a eu lieu aujourd'hui au siège social de l'UNESCO, à Paris. Le reste aidera à financer un séminaire de suivi en partenariat avec le Holocaust Memorial Museum des États-Unis, ce qui aidera différents pays à intégrer l'éducation sur l'holocauste dans leurs programmes d'enseignement. « En tant que ministre du Multiculturalisme, j'encourage tous les Canadiens à honorer la mémoire des victimes de la Shoah, à approfondir leurs connaissances sur ce sombre chapitre de l'histoire mondiale et à réfléchir aux dangers de l'antisémitisme, car c'est par l'entremise de l'éducation sur l'holocauste que nous renforçons notre engagement envers les mots ‘plus jamais’ »

It is also important to recall the remarkable individuals who risked their lives to protect Jews and other victims of Nazi terror.

    Laurie HawnHad the pleasure of presenting the story of the CF-104 Starfighter in the Cold War to 200 folks at the Kanata Legion. I enjoyed recounting my personal experiences and relating the RCAF history of the Starfighter operations in nuclear strike, photo reconnaissance and conventional attack roles during the 24 years of CF-104 operations in NATO Europe. Everyone enjoyed the many pictures and stories and several had actually lived there during that time. A lively and friendly Q&A followed and a lot of memories were kindled.

    Denis LebelLe Point : Des familles fortes. Un Canada fort. NOUVELLE IMPORTANTE Hier marquait à Ottawa la rentrée au Parlement pour la session d'hiver. Le Premier ministre Stephen Harper a énoncé dimanche dernier les grandes lignes de la prochaine session parlementaire lors d'un discours devant des militants. Les faits - Au cours de la session parlementaire, notre gouvernement ira de l'avant avec son plan ambitieux pour remettre de l'argent dans les poches des familles canadiennes. Ce plan comprend : - L'augmentation de la Prestation universelle pour la garde d'enfants (PUGE) pour les enfants de moins de six ans. À compter du 1er janvier 2015, les parents toucheront une prestation de 160 dollars par mois - au lieu de 100 dollars par mois - pour chaque enfant de moins de six ans. Au cours d'une année, les parents recevront jusqu'à 1 920 dollars par enfant ; - L'élargissement de la PUGE aux enfants de 6 à 17 ans. À compter du 1er janvier 2015, avec la PUGE élargie, les parents toucheront une prestation de 60 dollars par mois pour les enfants de 6 à 17 ans. Au cours d'une année, les parents recevront jusqu'à 720 dollars par enfant ; - La baisse d'impôt pour les familles, un crédit d'impôt fédéral qui permettra à une personne ayant un revenu plus élevé de transférer jusqu'à 50 000 dollars de revenu imposable à son conjoint dans une tranche d'imposition inférieure, et; - L'augmentation de 1 000 dollars des montants maximums relatifs à la déduction pour frais de garde d'enfants à compter de l'année d'imposition 2015. - Nous allons accomplir cela tout en revenant à l'équilibre budgétaire. - Notre gouvernement conservateur va aussi introduire dès vendredi un projet de loi afin de donner aux forces de l'ordre des outils supplémentaires pour lutter contre le terrorisme. Ces mesures viseront : - À aider les autorités à stopper les attaques planifiées ; - À protéger nos rues contre les menaces ; - À criminaliser la promotion du terrorisme, et; - À empêcher les terroristes d'aller à l'étranger et de faire du recrutement. En bref Au cours des mois à venir, notre gouvernement conservateur va garder le cap en faisant de l'économie sa priorité absolue. Nous allons faire cela en remettant de l'argent dans les poches des contribuables et en équilibrant le budget fédéral. Il faut bien comprendre que les Libéraux et le NPD élimineraient ces baisses d'impôts, augmenteraient les dépenses et accumuleraient les déficits. Contrairement aux partis d'opposition, nous continuerons aussi à appuyer nos alliés dans la lutte contre le groupe terroriste État islamique.
