Petition to the Government of Canada

  • The Russian Federation has invaded Ukraine, this is unprovoked attacked and illegal war;
  • This war has taken lives of thousands of peaceful Ukrainian civilians;
  • The systematic and barbaric evil that is being inflicted on the people of Ukraine leaves no doubt that Russia seeks the annihilation of the Ukrainian people and the destruction of the Ukrainian nation;
  • Russian soldiers destroy infrastructure, attack civilians, bomb residential areas, drop illegal cluster munitions and have bombed children's shelters and maternity hospitals;
  • While committing those war crimes, while going against all moral norms of humanity, Russian army uses several symbols, like "Z" which has turned into a symbols of hate towards Ukrainian nation; and
  • These symbols represent oppression, propaganda, killing of innocent people – which is contrary to Canadian values. That's why those symbols have no place in Canada.
We, the undersigned, people of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to take a stronger position, support victims of Russian aggression and prevent symbols of hate of being displayed in public in Canada. Ukrainian people are courageously defending not only their country, but all of Europe from the criminal Russian regime. Please prohibit public display of all symbols of Russian aggression in Canada.
