In 2010, the Honourable Jim Karygiannis, Liberal M.P. for Scarborough-Agincourt introduced Motion M-505 in the Canadian House of Commons, which recognized the actions of Saddam Hussein against the Kurds, as a crime against humanity. 

On the 25th anniversary of this brutal genocidal campaign of Saddam Hussien against the Kurdish people, Jim is once more reaching out to fellow parliamentarians in the Canadian Parliament to recognize Halabja as genocide: “The time has come for us to ask that these actions, including the gassing of the Kurds in Halabja, be recognized as genocide. I am asking you to join me, community stakeholders, members, friends and leaders of the Kurdish Community as we call on the Minister of Foreign Affairs to recognize these crimes against humanity as genocide.” said Jim in a statement.
