e-968 (Ukraine)

Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • The violence and tensions in Eastern Ukraine have continued to escalate over the past three years and show no sign of abating;
  • The conflict in Eastern Ukraine has led to the death of nearly 10,000 individuals, displaced more than 1.6 million individuals internally, and left over 3 million in need of humanitarian aid;
  • The Government of Canada has failed to sign the Canada-Ukraine Defence Cooperation Agreement;
  • The Government of Canada has cut the supply of life-saving RADARSAT-2 imagery to the Ukrainian military;
  • The Government of Canada has ignored Ukraine’s calls for lethal defensive military equipment, while providing the same support to the Kurdish military; and
  • The Government of Canada has failed to add Ukraine to the Automatic Firearms Country Control List.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to add Ukraine to the Automatic Firearms Country Control List, sign the Canada-Ukraine Defence Cooperation Agreement and supply the Ukrainian military with lethal defensive equipment.
