On April 2, 2014, Toronto City Councillor Shelley Carroll presented a motion, which was seconded by Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly, in support of a monument commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide.
The motion specifically recommends that:
“City Council request the Director, Toronto Office of Partnerships and the Toronto Public Art Commission to work with representatives from the Armenian National Committee of Toronto to determine the resources needed and best location for a monument commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide”
The motion was referred to the Toronto City Council Executive Committee for discussion.
The ANCT and AYF are calling upon all supporters of human rights, especially Torontonians to contact the Toronto City Council Executive Committee members.
