SIGN THESE PETITIONS TO #CLOSETHESKY
Members of Parliament of all main parties sponsored our petitions to close the airspace over Ukraine. Please sign all four petitions separately. (It's important to sign them all to encourage all parties to work together and finally close the sky over Ukraine.)

Petition to the Government of Canada
The Russian Federation has launched an unprovoked war against the people of Ukraine;
The Russian Federation has committed multiple war crimes against the people of Ukraine, including crimes against peace and crimes against humanity;
Russian President Putin has threatened all other nations, including Canada, that are assisting the people of Ukraine in their valiant defence of their country;
Russian President Putin has put nuclear deterrent forces on alert, which is an unprecedented and dangerous escalation;
The Russian Federation poses a great and immediate risk to Ukraine and her allies;
Canada is home to 1.4 million citizens of Ukrainian decent and has a deep and unflinching commitment to the people of Ukraine, such as being the first country to recognize their independence in 1991;
Ukraine has supported NATO’s operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq; and
Ukraine also contributed to NATO's counter-piracy Operation Ocean Shield.
We, the undersigned, citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to:
1. Provide direct military assistance to the defence of Ukraine;
2. Immediately put the Canadian Armed Forces on high operational readiness in case of rapid deployment;
3. Immediately provide further lethal weapons and supplies to the defence of Ukraine; and
4. Immediately urge NATO allies and Ukraine-friendly countries to close the airspace over Ukraine and deploy peacekeeping troops in Ukraine, provide military assistance to Kyiv and support the Ukrainian people.
Please sign all four petitions separately. It's important to sign them all to encourage all parties to work together and finally close the sky over Ukraine.
