In memory of the 2 million innocent Polish victims of Communism that were transported to Siberia in the early 1940s, on orders from the Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. Taken abruptly from their homes and travelling in cattle cars under horrendous conditions, they went to far off labour camps. Many of them have no graves to call their own, and it's our moral duty to honour them with a memorial in Ottawa.
Communism is a cancerous, God-less system that has perfected the methods of extermination and suppression of whole nations, by massive hunger, poverty and killing. Poland was one of those victims.
Let's not allow history to repeat itself - for all that evil needs to survive and rise up again is to remain hidden and forgotten.
