Mark Adler, MP for York Centre Makes Statement on Yom HaShoa

(OTTAWA) April 4, 2012 Mark Adler, MP rose in the House of Commons today to make the following statement:

Mr. Speaker, on the evening of April 18th, Jewish communities around the world will come together and mark Yom HaShoa, a special day of remembrance for the suffering and murder of millions of innocent men, women and children during The Holocaust. Mr. Speaker, as Parliamentarians it is our duty to ensure that “never again” is about more than just words, it is about action.


While there are numerous examples of our governments work in the fight against anti-Semitism, I am most proud that in the 2010 speech from the Throne, our Government committed to supporting the National Holocaust Memorial, which will be located in the National Capital Region.


On April 19th, this Yom HaShoah, I ask you to join me in rejecting anti-Semitism in all its virulent forms and in remembering the victims of the Holocaust.
