The Day of human rights is celebrated every year on 10 December, the anniversary of the adoption by the general Assembly of the united Nations of the universal Declaration of human rights in 1948.
On the occasion of the 69th anniversary, this Sunday, the canadian Commission of human rights has emphasized in a statement that “substantial progress in the dialogue on human rights” have been made in Canada, notably referring to the recent apology from the government of Canada to the community LGBTQ2 for the injustices of the past.
For his part, the prime minister Justin Trudeau recalled that despite the “important progress” in recent years, “there is still much to do.”
“Far too many people continue to see their basic rights violated simply because of who they are. In Canada, our work is still unfinished, especially in the case of indigenous peoples and other members of the society”, he said stressing the recent apology to former students of aboriginal residential schools in Newfoundland and Labrador, as well as to the communities LGBTQ2.
“The generations of today and of tomorrow are still waiting for the promise of a Canada fair and egalitarian society is achieved. Today, I ask all Canadians to unite to build a world where all people, regardless of their identity, their beliefs, or their origin, will be free and equal in dignity and rights.”
