From the Leduc Representative:
On Oct. 30, I was pleased to be in the Legislature for the introduction, debate and passage of Bill 37, the Ukrainian Famine and Genocide (Holodomor) Memorial Day Act. This bill recognizes millions of Ukrainian men, women, and children who perished in the Ukrainian famine and genocide, known as Holodomor, of 1932-33. It will also establish and proclaim the fourth Saturday in November each year as the Ukrainian Famine and Genocide (Holodomor) Memorial Day in Alberta. This occasion marked only the third time in the more than 100-year history of the Alberta Legislature that a bill was moved through all three stages in one day.
