    It's been a pleasure to work with Minister Stéphane Dion on putting in place additional sanctions on Russia so as to send a blunt message that diplomatic engagement will not mean appeasement but will be an opportunity to make clear that we stand shoulder to shoulder with the people of Ukraine. With the second anniversary of the military invasion and illegal annexation of Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, the sanctions on the business entities which run the ports in Feodosia, Evpatoria and Yalta are of symbolic as well as financial significance. The following have just been added to the list of Sanctioned individuals and organizations: Oleg Konstantinovich Akimov Aleksandr Igorevich Kofman Petr Savchenko State Enterprise: Evpatoria Sea Commercial Port State Enterprise: Feodosia Sea Trading Port State Enterprise: Yalta Sea Trading Port Yalta Film Studio Canada's policy on Sanctions and a list of another 124 individuals and organizations subject to Canadian sanctions because of Russia's illegal occupation of Crimea can be found here: http://www.international.gc.ca/sanctions/countries-pays/ukraine.aspx?lang=eng House of Commons Canada’s Foreign Policy—Global Affairs Canada Pavlo Klimkin Bill Browder Vladimir Vladimirovich Kara-Murza #Cdnpoli

    On March 9, I addressed a town hall forum on human rights in Russia at the University of Toronto which featured the Deputy Leader of the People’s Freedom Party Vladimir Kara-Murza; journalist Zhanna Nemtsova, the daughter of assassinated Russian opposition leader and human rights activist Boris Nemstov; and William Browder who has led the charge in the West to pass laws targeting and blacklisting high ranking Russian officials responsible for the 2008 death of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky. On March 10, I participated in the House of Commons Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Development (FAAE) when it heard from these three witnesses as well as former Justice Minister Irwin Cotler.

    Here's the video of me asking our Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Stéphane Dion, about Canada's commitment to support Ukraine. His response: "...I am so pleased to go to Ukraine to express to the Government of Ukraine the steadfast support of Canada for Ukraine, how much we deeply disagree with the invasion and interference of the Russian government in Ukraine, and also how much we will not tolerate from a Russian minister any insults against the community of Ukraine in Canada..."

    Important and productive meeting this morning with Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, Ukrainian Canadian community leaders Paul Grod and Renata Roman, and Liberal colleagues to discuss the Liberal Party's strong support and priorities for Ukraine. Mr. Trudeau and Liberal candidates Chrystia Freeland, Arif Virani, James Maloney and myself can be counted on to stand up for Ukraine. Quoting Paul Grod, Ukrainian Canadian Congress National President, on today’s meeting: “We were pleased to be able to have a full, frank and productive exchange with Mr. Trudeau … I am pleased that Mr. Trudeau and his candidates Borys Wrzesnewskyj, Chrystia Freeland, Arif Virani and James Maloney have committed to ensure that Ukraine is a top policy priority for the Liberal Party of Canada. We are pleased that the Liberal party will increase sanctions against Russia including the SWIFT payments system for its illegal occupation of Crimea and ongoing terrorist war in eastern Ukraine.” Mr. Trudeau and the Liberal Party have taken the strongest position of support for Ukraine of any of the major federal parties. We will explore, with our allies, removing Russian banks from the international SWIFT banking system. We are also proposing to implement sanctions without the Harper exemptions for Igor Sechin, Chair of Rosneft, and Sergei Chemezov, CEO of Rostec.
