Trudeau joins rally timed to one-year anniversary of war in Ukraine

Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau joined a rally of thousands in Toronto, timed to the one-year anniversary of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

“Tonight, I joined Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Minister of National Defence Anita Anand, Ministers Carolyn Bennett and Marci Ien, MP colleagues, and thousands of Canadians in Toronto to #StandWithUkraine,” Canadian MP Yvan Baker posted on Facebook.

He noted that “on this solemn day, we commemorate the victims of Russia’s genocidal war, we honour the courage of the Ukrainian people who are fighting for their freedom and ours.”

“And we redouble our efforts to ensure that we are not here a year from now marking a second anniversary, to ensure Ukraine has won the war, and that we are looking ahead to a brighter future for the Ukrainian people and a more secure world for us all,” the MP added.

Events to mark the one-year anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine were held in more than 40 Canadian cities on February 24.
