Canada / Holodomor

Quebec National Assembly Recognizes Ukrainian Genocide
Montreal Gazette, June 4, 2010
"The Quebec National Assembly unanimously adopted Bill 390 yesterday, declaring the fourth Saturday of November to be Holodomor Memorial Day, commemorating the 1932-1933 genocide of millions of Ukrainians. Soviet dictator Josef Stalin ordered that food be withheld from Ukraine and as a result as many as 5 million people died. The bill was sponsored by Louise Beaudoin, the Parti Québécois MNA for Rosemont."
