    Jason KenneyThe Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister for Multiculturalism, issued the following statement to recognize the Holodomor: “Today, we remember one of the greatest tragedies of the last century. The Holodomor, otherwise known as the “Terror-Famine in Ukraine,” which resulted from the policies of the Soviet regime under Joseph Stalin. “The deliberate starvation of millions of people in 1932-33 is among the worst crimes against humanity ever committed. “The Government of Canada remains committed to memorializing the Holodomor victims and promoting international recognition. In 2008, Canada was the first nation to recognize the Ukrainian famine as an act of genocide, when Parliament unanimously passed a bill establishing the fourth Saturday in November as Ukrainian Famine and Genocide (Holodomor) Memorial Day. “Each year, Parliamentarians join with members of Canada’s Ukrainian community and others to commemorate the Holodomor at gatherings across the country. In doing so, we honour the memory of those who perished and the legacy of those who survived, including many who found refuge in Canada. “It is by remembering the tragedies and atrocities of the past that we can equip ourselves to prevent them from happening again. “As Minister for Multiculturalism, I stand with Canadians of Ukrainian descent and all Canadians in commemorating the Holodomor.” Déclaration du ministre Kenney au sujet de l'Holodomor Ottawa, le 22 novembre 2014 – L’honorable Jason Kenney, ministre du Multiculturalisme, a fait la déclaration suivante en reconnaissance de l’Holodomor : « Aujourd’hui, nous nous souvenons d’une des plus grandes tragédies du siècle dernier, l’Holodomor, aussi appelé “Grande famine de l’Ukraine”, le résultat des politiques du régime soviétique de Joseph Staline. « Cette extermination délibérée par la faim de millions de personnes en 1932 et en 1933 figure parmi les pires crimes jamais commis contre l’humanité. « Le gouvernement du Canada demeure résolu à perpétuer le souvenir des victimes de l’Holodomor et à promouvoir la reconnaissance internationale de cette tragédie. En 2008, le Canada a été le premier pays à reconnaître la famine ukrainienne à titre de génocide, par l’adoption unanime au Parlement d’un projet de loi déclarant le quatrième samedi de novembre le Jour commémoratif de la famine et du génocide ukrainiens (l’Holodomor). « Chaque année, les parlementaires se joignent aux membres de la communauté ukrainienne du Canada et à d’autres personnes à l’occasion de rassemblements partout au pays en souvenir de l’Holodomor. Ce faisant, nous rendons hommage à ceux qui ont péri et à l’héritage laissé par ceux qui ont survécu, dont beaucoup ont trouvé asile au Canada. « En gardant en mémoire les tragédies et les atrocités du passé, nous nous donnons les moyens de faire en sorte qu’elles ne se reproduisent jamais. « À titre de ministre du Multiculturalisme, je me joins aux Canadiens d’origine ukrainienne et à tous les Canadiens dans la commémoration de l’Holodomor. »

    Julian FantinoAs part of my ongoing meetings, roundtables and forums with Veterans from coast to coast to coast, today I had the opportunity to sit down with Veterans, Veterans stakeholders and experts in Québec City to discuss a host of issues as we continue to work together to improve benefits and programs for Veterans. A strong dialogue with our stakeholders is key to ensuring that the needs of our Veterans and their families continue to be met, and to help identify any gaps that may exists. I want to thank all of those who joined us today, your commitment and steadfast support for our men and women in uniform is truly commendable. I look forward to continuing these discussions.

    Julian FantinoToday I joined the Canadian Football League, Veterans, and football fans at the Grey Cup Eastern Division semi-final playoff game in Montréal for the Veterans Remembrance Tribute ceremony. The pre-game ceremony included a colour party, honour guard, and a moment of silence in honour of Canada’s Veterans. I also had the pleasure to participate in the official coin toss at the beginning of the game. It was honour to be part of such a great event that paid tribute to our men and women in uniform.

    Julian FantinoIt was an honour to present certificates of appreciation to members of the Toronto Paramedic Services Veterans Support team yesterday with my good friend Major-General (R) Richard Rohmer. These individuals volunteered to care for and support Canadian Veterans who travelled to France to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy. Without the Toronto Paramedic Services Veterans Support team, some of the Veterans, many of whom were in their 90s, would not have been able to make this extraordinary trip to pay tribute to their fallen comrades and reflect on their service. A very special thanks to the following individuals: • Ric Rangel-Bron • Kelly Burton • Lisa Muzzin • Mike Wionzek • John Mason • Debbie Wicks • Jennifer Shield • Steve Henderson • Ken Cole • Don Meikle • Shawn Staff And thank you to all who joined us.
