During this year’s virtual commemoration organized by the Armenian National Committee of Canada (ANCC), Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the ANCC and the Armenian-Canadian community with a strong message, upholding Canada’s recognition of the Armenian Genocide and condemning this violent crime against humanity.
In his message, Prime Minister Trudeau said “Every year on April 24th, we take a moment to remember the 1.5 million Armenians who were systematically murdered by the Ottoman Turkish Empire”, honouring the memory of the innocent victims who perished during the Armenian Genocide of 1915-1923.
“Although it has been a century, the memory of those who were murdered reminds us that we must never remain silent in the face of violence, discrimination and hatred in any form” added the Prime Minister.
Prime Minister Trudeau concluded his message by saying “To Armenian communities in Canada and around the world, know that we stand with you. We remember and we will never forget.”
