Canadian opposition supports giving defensive weapon to Ukraine

The Canadian parliamentary opposition promises to help Ukraine resist aggression and supports the provision of defensive weapons.

Andrew Scheer, the leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and the head of the official parliamentary opposition, said this in the congratulations on the Independence Day of Ukraine.

"We will always stand side by side with Ukraine in its struggle for freedom. The previous government took practical steps to help Ukraine; in particular, it sent military instructors, provided military assistance and imposed sanctions on Russian officials responsible for the war. We continue to call for further measures, including the provision of lethal weapons," Mr. Scheer said.
