The House of Commons of Canada unanimously recognized the activity of metropolitan Andrey Sheptytskyi (1865 – 1944) during WWII an example “of devotion to the main human rights.” So reported Radio Freedom with reference to the Congress of Ukrainians of Canada.
The proposal to distinguish the activity of the leader of the largest religious community of the Western Ukraine was submitted to the Parliament by the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism of Canada, Jason Kenney.
The members of the Canadian Parliament noted that “at the darkest time of the history of Europe, during the mass murder of Jews and the Nazi occupation, Metropolitan Shetytskyi spoke loudly against violence in his sermons “Thou shall not kill.” Thanks to his efforts, more than 160 Jews were rescued, one of whom was present at the session of the House of Commons of Canada when the decision was passed.
