Statement by the Prime Minister on Human Rights Day

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement on Human Rights Day:

“Seventy years ago, delegates from around the world came together to adopt the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which declares everyone is ‘born free and equal in dignity and rights.’ We take this occasion to celebrate our very own John Humphrey, who helped draft this revolutionary document, and to recommit ourselves to a more just and equal world.
