I condemn the terrible, unjustified, and unprovoked attacks on Ukraine by Russia. My team and I stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. I continue to work alongside my NDP colleagues in Parliament to fight for Ukrainians to have a strong humanitarian plan, support the thousands of people who require urgent refuge in Canada and fight for VISA-free access to Canada for Ukrainians.
Many constituents have been inquiring into how they can help locally to support Ukrainians fleeing Putin's war on the people of Ukraine.
I am co-hosting a United for Ukraine Benefit Concert on Sunday, July 17 from 6PM to 8PM (PDT) at Edmonds Plaza (7433 Edmonds Street, Burnaby) alongside the Burnaby Firefighters Local 233, the New Westminster Firefighters, Holy Eucharist Cathedral, and Burnaby Welcomes Ukraine group.
I hope to see you there!
MP, New Westminster-Burnaby
