Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Solidarity of NDP

[5 May, 2005]

Mr. Bill Siksay (Burnaby-Douglas, NDP): "… I rise to honour the spirit of the Holocaust survivors and the memory of the six million Jews who perished.

"Let us join together as Canadians to denounce all acts of hate and bigotry directed at the Jewish community. ‘Never again’, must be our commitment. Our actions against anti-Semitism and genocide must become a reality.

"Anti-Semitism is on the rise worldwide… Incidents of hate against one community are felt by all Canadians, as these attacks threaten the very core Canadian values of diversity, equality, human dignity and fundamental human rights…

"New Democrats stand in solidarity with the survivors of the Holocaust, with the Jewish community and with all those who fight to eliminate all forms of hatred and discrimination…"
