Petition to the Prime Minister

Whereas:
  • The Russian Federation has launched an unprovoked war against the people of Ukraine;
  • The Russian Federation has committed multiple war crimes against the people of Ukraine, including crimes against peace and crimes against humanity;
  • Russian President Putin has threatened all other nations, including Canada, that are assisting the people of Ukraine in their valiant defence of their country;
  • Russian President Putin has put nuclear deterrent forces on alert, which is an unprecedented and dangerous escalation;
  • The Russian Federation poses a great and immediate risk to Ukraine and her allies;
  • Canada is home to 1.4 million citizens of Ukrainian decent, and has a deep and unflinching commitment to the people of Ukraine, such as being the first country to recognize their independence in 1991;
  • Ukraine has supported NATO’s operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq; and
  • Ukraine also contributed to NATO's counter-piracy operation Ocean Shield.
We, the undersigned, citizens and permanent residents of Canada, call upon the Prime Minister to:
1. Immediately provide further lethal weapons and supplies to the defence of Ukraine;
2. Immediately urge NATO allies and Ukraine-friendly countries to close the airspace over Ukraine; and
3. Deploy peacekeeping troops in Ukraine, provide direct military assistance to Kyiv and support the Ukrainian people.
