Robert Conquest, the legendary historian who was the first academic to expose the horrific terror of the Soviet regime died last week. He was frequently maligned by left-leaning academics and the Soviet government for his work exposing Soviet repression. When he published a revised version of his landmark work "The Great Terror" in the 1990s, his friend and colleague, Kingsley Amis, suggested revising the title of the book to "I Told You So, You F*#king Fools."
Sadly, the critics of Canada's Memorial to The Victims of Communism still question whether any victims of communism exist at all. A small group has even launched a frivolous legal challenge to stop the project to memorialize the more than 100 million victims worldwide.
This week's landmark NCC decision to approve the first stage of construction for the Memorial to The Victims of Communism is a welcome relief for millions of Canadians whose families suffered and fled communist tyranny.
Over the past six months, a small group of critics have aggressively railed to stop the memorial by taking aim at its supporters in government.
Sadly, the primary casualty has been neither the memorial nor the intended political targets, but the dignity of millions of Canadians whose families suffered and escaped communist tyranny and helped build the nation we know today.
