KOMAGATA MARU APOLOGY IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS

OTTAWA – Brian Masse MP Windsor West was pleased to be in the House of Commons chamber today to witness the formal apology in Parliament regarding the Komagata Maru. In 2007, Jack Layton was the first party leader to call for an official apology from the Government of Canada in the House of Commons, while in 2008, then Prime Minister Harper had apologized to the Sikh Community in Surrey, B.C., but many demanded a formal apology in the House of Commons.
