Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Statement by Hon. Steven Fletcher (Minister of State (Transport), CPC) on Raoul Wallenberg

Mr. Speaker, I am pleased to inform the House that Raoul Wallenberg’s legacy will be honoured by Canada Post with a Raoul Wallenberg commemorative stamp.

Our government is proud to honour Canada’s first honorary citizen on the 100th year of his birth. The sacrifices he made to save tens of thousands of Hungarian Jews during the Second World War will always be remembered.
