Canada should pay more attention to internally displaced persons in Ukraine – opposition

Taking into account the complicated situation in Ukraine, Canada should provide greater assistance to Ukrainian internally displaced persons (IDPs).

Michelle Rempel, the Official Opposition Critic for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship within the shadow cabinet of Canada, said this in a commentary to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"The current situation in Ukraine is difficult, so Canada should pay more attention to it. Canada has the necessary means at its disposal, and I am sure that all MPs will support the government's efforts to find ways to help internally displaced persons in Ukraine," Rempel said.

She stressed that Canada had always come to the aid of people in need. "On behalf of our party, I admit that the crisis in Ukraine is very significant, and Canada needs to pay attention to it," she noted.
