Call to action: last chance to get Holodomor in Toronto school curriculum this Monday!

This Monday is the last chance to get the Holodomor included in the Toronto District School Board 2008-09 curriculum for CHG38M – Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity (formerly Genocide: Historical and Contemporary Implications). To show your support, the League of Ukrainian Canadians is organizing at TDSB Headquarters and is asking the Ukrainian community to show their support for just one mere hour at a car and TTC friendly location:

Monday June 2nd, 2008 @ 6pm
Toronto District School Board
5050 Yonge St, North York (Google map)

By car: Just north of the 401 on Yonge & North York Blvd., by Mel Lastman Square & Toronto Centre for the Arts

By subway: A quick walk from the TTC North York Centre station, one stop north of Sheppard

The Genocide curriculum currently only includes the Holocaust (6 million deaths), the Rwandan Genocide (< 1 million deaths) and the Armenian Genocide (1.5 million deaths). The TDSB decided to not include the Holodomor (7-10 million deaths) in the curriculum this past Winter, despite the effort put forth by the community and MP Borys

Let’s go, 125,000 Ukrainians in the GTA and show your support! It’s only one hour of your time at a convenient location and teach our children the horrors of one of the largest Genocides! We wiill be successful, we just need to educate the Board of directors on one of Canada’s newest laws 🙂
