April 30: A date to commemorate the Indochinese refugees to Canada

An Act of Parliament now makes April 30 a day of commemoration for the Indochinese refugee movement. The Act is on-line. CIHS President, Michael Molloy, met with the Senators and that hearing is now on-line. (Note: Videos best viewed with Internet Explorer). In speaking about the movement of the ‘boat people’ to Canada, Molloy said, This movement “…was an amazing achievement. It was made possible by outstanding leadership at all levels of government, by  hardworking public servants, and above all, by literally hundreds of thousands of ordinary Canadian who sponsored refugees through their churches and synagogues, their services clubs, unions, and ad hoc groups of friends and neighbours.”
