Armradio – A fund-raising for the organization of events dedicated to the 100th anniversray of the Armenian Genocide was held in Montreal under the auspices of the Armenian Embassy in Canada.
Armenian Ambassador to Canada Armen Yeganian stressed in his speech that “genocidal expressions still continue, and an undeniable proof of this was the destruction of the Armenian Saint Martyrs Church in Deir Zor by Islamists.”
Attending the event was Harut Sassounian, editor-in-chief of the California Courier, who presented a detailed report on the elimination of consequences of the Armenian Genocide.
More than 400 people participated in the fund-raising; a total of 150,000 Canadian dollars was donated.
