Parliamentary Secretary Parm Gill attends the annual Yom Hashoah V'Hagvurah Holocaust Commemoration Ceremony
VAUGHAN, ON, April 27, 2014 /CNW/ - As part of its annual Yom Hashoah V'Hagvurah commemorative ceremony, the Jewish community of the Greater Toronto Area came together today at the Schwartz/Reisman Centre, in Vaughan, to pay tribute to the six million Jews who lost their lives during the Holocaust. Parm Gill, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Veterans Affairs, attended the ceremony on behalf of the Honourable Julian Fantino.
"Canadian survivors of the Holocaust have inspired our nation through
their hard work and indomitable will. Their stories of perseverance and
unfailing hope must be shared with all. They must be preserved and
handed down from generation to generation, so that one day, we can
confidently say: Never again."
The Honourable Julian Fantino, Minister of Veterans Affairs
"I am truly honoured to represent Minister Fantino at this important
ceremony. Thanks in part to the sacrifices and achievements made by
Canadians during the Second World War, almost 350,000 Jews now live in
our country, helping us to stay true to our inner convictions and
ideals of freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law."
Parm Gill, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Veterans Affairs
