Canada cannot abandon Ukraine’s citizens to the Russian madman Putin.
As the granddaughter of Ukrainian immigrants who sought refuge in Canada 100 years ago, I feel this invasion deep in my soul.
We must do more than just stand by and condemn the evil acts of the dictator Putin. Canada must act now to stand up for a peaceful and free Ukraine.
The least we can do now is to open our borders to the hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians who are now fleeing their country.
This is not the time for weak words. It is our moral duty to act now to help the people of Ukraine.
