A group of Montreal politicians marched with an estimated 10,000 people in honour of the 1.5 million victims killed in the 1915 Armenian genocide.
The march was a show of solidarity against all forms of genocide and crimes against humanity, organizers said.

The Montreal area is home to about 20,000 people of Armenian descent — almost half the Canadian total.

One of the Armenian-Canadians whose family came here following the genocide was Harout Chitilian, the vice president of Montreal’s executive committee.
“Not only have we found a home in Canada, but we actively participate in politics and the economy,” he said. “Canada has been great to us.”
