Statement by the Leader of the Official Opposition on International Holocaust Remembrance Day

The Leader of the Official Opposition, Tom Mulcair (Outremont), made the following statement on Holocaust Commemoration Day:

“On this International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we join Canadians in paying tribute to the millions of innocents who died during this dark chapter in history.

We remember the millions of Jewish women, men and children who were killed by the Nazis in the Second World War, and we pay tribute to the survivors and to all those who helped save lives during this tragedy.

Today, it is our duty to remember and teach our children our responsibility to combat racism, discrimination and anti-Semitism in all its forms, to prevent similar atrocities from ever happening again.”
