    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.”

    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’ »

    Kellie LeitchSTATEMENT BY THE PRIME MINISTER OF CANADA ON THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF COMMEMORATION TO HONOUR THE VICTIMS OF THE HOLOCAUST Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement marking the International Day of Commemoration to Honour the Victims of the Holocaust: “Today marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest of Nazi Germany’s concentration and death camps. On this sombre day, the world has an obligation to reflect on the evil of the Holocaust, condemn the Nazi regime that perpetrated it, and to renew efforts to help prevent such horrors from being repeated in the future. “On this anniversary we also honour those who, against all odds, survived the death camps and shared their experiences with the world so that we could better understand the horrors they endured. Words cannot do justice to their strength and courage. “I was reminded of this extraordinary fortitude when I had the privilege of visiting the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem last year. It was a truly moving experience that I will always remember. “It is also important to recall the remarkable individuals who risked their lives to protect Jews and other victims of Nazi terror. The world should continue to draw inspiration from their righteousness and humanity. “Recognizing that Canadians must remember this dark part of human history and learn from it, we are currently building a National Holocaust Monument in Ottawa. “On this day, I commit that Canada will continue to dedicate itself to supporting Holocaust remembrance, education and research and to combat anti-Semitism around the world.”

    Jason KenneyThe Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister for Multiculturalism, issued the following statement recognizing the celebration of India’s Republic Day: "January 26th marks the 66th Republic Day of India. On this day in 1950, the world’s largest democracy became a fully-independent republic when the Constitution of India came into force, replacing the Government of India Act as the country’s governing document. "Republic Day celebrations are ones of pomp and pageantry, drawing thousands of people from across the country and around the world. As part of this massive celebration of its democracy, India’s heroes are honoured with awards of bravery and India’s rich cultural heritage is on full display. Flag-raising ceremonies and other celebrations also take place outside India in countries with large Indian communities, including Canada. "For over a century, Canadians of Indian heritage have made significant contributions to Canada. Today, more than 1.1 million people of Indian origin live in Canada and, with India continually among Canada’s top source countries for immigrants; they continue to help shape our national story. "As Minister for Multiculturalism, I extend my best wishes for a happy Republic Day to everyone celebrating the day in India, here in Canada, and around the world." L’honorable Jason Kenney, ministre du Multiculturalisme, a fait la déclaration suivante à l’occasion de la Fête de la République de l’Inde : « Le 26 janvier marque la 66e Fête de la République de l’Inde. À cette date en 1950, la plus grande démocratie du monde est devenue une république indépendante à part entière à la suite de l’entrée en vigueur de la constitution de l’Inde, remplaçant ainsi la loi sur le gouvernement de l’Inde en qualité de document constitutif de ce pays. « Les célébrations entourant la Fête de la République sont tout en apparat et en splendeur; elles attirent des milliers de personnes de partout au pays et au monde. Dans le cadre de cette imposante célébration de sa démocratie, l’Inde honore ses héros avec des décorations pour actes de bravoure, et le riche patrimoine culturel de l’Inde est au premier plan. Des cérémonies de lever du drapeau et d’autres célébrations se déroulent aussi à l’extérieur de l’Inde, dans des pays qui ont une grande communauté indienne, y compris le Canada. « Depuis plus d’un siècle, les Canadiens d’origine indienne ont apporté de nombreuses contributions au Canada. Aujourd’hui, ils sont plus de 1,1 million à vivre au Canada et, comme l’Inde demeure parmi les plus importants pays sources d’immigrants au Canada, ils continuent de façonner notre histoire nationale. « En ma qualité de ministre du Multiculturalisme, je tiens à souhaiter une heureuse Fête de la République à toutes les personnes qui souligneront cet événement, autant en Inde, ici au Canada, qu’ailleurs dans le monde. »
