TDSB voting on excluding Holodomor from genocide curriculum Thursday

This Thursday the Toronto District School Board will vote on the recommendations made last week notably to exclude the Ukrainian Holodomor famine genocide from its curriculum. Please show your support by sparing only an hour of your time:

Thursday June 12th, 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

Has no one given them a copy of one our country’s newest laws? Saskatchewan has also recognized the genocide with Manitoba and Ontario on it’s way. They already include the Holodomor in its curriculum in Illinois, Minnesota, California and of course Alberta.

Let the members of the board know what you think! E-mail Trustees Chris Bolton, Cathy Dandy, John Hastings, Maria Rodrigues and Chris Tonks.

Thanks to the League of Ukrainian Canadians for keeping us informed!
