Ottawa, ON-March 17, 2011-The Ukrainian Canadian Congress (UCC) welcomed the appointment today of Dr. Lindy Ledohowski to the Board of Trustees of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
“Dr. Ledohowski brings excellent subject matter expertise and a wide perspective to the Museum’s Board of Trustees,” said Ukrainian Canadian Congress National President Paul Grod. “The UCC has been asking for a re-constitution of the Board, and this appointment is an important first step in the right direction.”
The Ukrainian Canadian Congress has asked the Government of Canada to:
1. Reconstitute the Museum’s Board of Trustees;
2. Conduct an independent review of the Museum’s design, layout and content in a public and transparent manner to ensure that it is decided upon and displayed in a fair and equitable manner;
3. Ensure that the contents of the CMHR be reviewed by a newly appointed, independent and impartial Content Advisory Committee; and
4. Make sure that all work and procurement relating to content, design or that may impact on these aspects, be immediately suspended until its design, layout and content has been publicly presented.
