ANCQ states that “Quebec’s MNA’s voices join other organizations in Quebec and around the world that everything must be done to never again repeat the horrors of the Armenian Genocide. Raising awareness is vital and as such, we would like to echo their invite to all Quebecers of all different backgrounds to join the Arrmenians for yet another historic walk in Downtown Montreal on Sunday May 8th at 3pm.”
