Demonstrations are taking place in Montreal, Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver today to denounce the Russian military strike against Ukraine.
BC Premier John Horgan says Russia’s attack is an unprovoked war of aggression and must be condemned.
Ontario Premier Doug Ford also condemned Russia’s actions against Ukraine and says his government will provide 300-thousand-dollars in humanitarian aid and settlement services for Ukrainians.
The Canada-Ukraine Foundation has also launched a fundraiser for humanitarian aid.
Officials say Canada’s new sanctions target 58 people and entities connected to Russia, and existing export permits for Russia have been cancelled.
