Gov’t of Canada to fund Holodomor site

From the Canadian Heritage Press Release:

The Ukrainian Canadian Congress will receive $50,000 in funding to create a section on its website called Holodomor: Honouring the Past for a Better Future. This site will highlight experiences of Holodomor survivors living in Canada. The site will also include cultural and artistic works by Canadian artists in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Holodomor.

“The Government is proud to participate in this project, which will educate the Canadian and international public about the Holodomor and honour its survivors who now live in Canada,” said Minister Verner. “This website will allow all Canadians join Ukrainians and the international community in commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Holodomor.”

That’s a good chunk of money for just ‘a section on its website’, they should look into getting its own domain.  While I do appreciate all the great work done by the UCC and what they stand for, I’ll admit their website is in desparate need of a face lift.  I hope their new Holodomor section is designed well, and that it will include some great content like video testimonials!
