Holodomor Awareness Tour Traverses Canada
Holodomor was a genocide wreaked upon the Ukrainian population of the former Soviet Union in the 30’s in numbers equivalent to the entire population of Western Canada. A commemorative bus is touring throughout the country to make people aware of the horror. Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa MP Robert Sopuck shares the need for such awareness.
“I think it’s extremely important. Our government passed legislation recognizing Holodomor as a genocide. And as you know, the Ukrainian population in Canada’s 1.3 million, and many of whom are still alive and had relatives killed by Stalin in the Holodomor.”
He explains the tour bus is helping people learn more about the issue.
