A Message from the Premier of British Columbia on the Occasion of the 99th Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide and the Dedication of the Armenian Genocide Monument -
As Premier of the province of British Columbia, I wish to extend my best wishes to B.C.’s Armenian community, and express my sincere condolences to the families affected by the Armenian Genocide 99 years ago.
In British Columbia, we honour the victims of this tragedy. By recognizing and remembering these events, we hope to prevent them from ever happening again – anywhere.
Today I join with you in celebrating the unveiling of the Armenian Genocide Monument. Dedicated to the memory of the victims, this monument and today’s commemoration give us an opportunity to pause, reflect, and renew our commitment to peace, respect, and harmony.
Thank you everyone involved in organizing today’s event.
