Canadian opposition supports abolition of visas for Ukrainians

The New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP) supports the introduction of a visa-free regime for Ukrainian citizens.

This was said in the response of the leader of Canada's New Democratic Party, Jagmeet Singh, to the request of the author of the petition for visa-free travel, Nicholas Krawetz, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"As a leader of the New Democratic Party, I pledge our continued support for short-term visa-free travel to Canada by Ukrainian citizens," Singh responded to Krawetz's request.

According to him, the cancellation of visas for the citizens of Ukraine by Canada is beneficial to both states.

As reported, last summer, a private e-petition to lift visas for short-term (90-day) stays for the citizens of Ukraine traveling to Canada was submitted to the Canadian Federal Parliament by Nicholas Krawetz from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
