Please don’t spam my mail. Educate yourself if you want to lead Canadians… Why do you parrot Judeocentric merdia and politicians? Are you one of them?
Where is the proof that there was an annexation and the ‘provocations’ are Russian!?
The only annexation was “Western”-sponsored, Kiev junta takeover of Ukrainian government… while provocations are language like yours.
What Russian military intervention?
With politically correct politicians like yourself I pray that Russia intervene militarily in Nunavut and annex Canada ASAP 🙂

Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns over Canada’s participation in NATO operations in Eastern Europe.
As you know, the Conservative government recently announced that Canada will be sending six CF-18s to participate in NATO’s plan to provide reassurance to its member states. However, it appears that little planning went into this hasty deployment and few details on the nature of the commitment have been shared with Canadians. Rest assured, New Democrats will vigorously oppose any actions that would lead to a further escalation in tensions or to violence.
To be clear, the Russian Federation’s annexation of Crimea and provocations in Eastern Ukraine are as unacceptable as they are illegal. And like our allies, we’ve been unequivocal in condemning Russia’s military intervention and in calling for a diplomatic solution to this crisis. ( http://www.ndp.ca/news/ndp-statement-situation-ukraine
) However, after turning their backs on international engagement for years, the Conservatives have now severely constricted our country’s ability to play a constructive role.
We must reassure our partners in Eastern Europe of our firm commitment to their sovereignty, stability, and security. But it’s not enough for Canada to simply posture and take potshots. Instead, we must step up our diplomatic efforts in the region because a political resolution remains the only path to long-term stability.
Canada’s reputation as an independent and principled member of the international community was a cornerstone for some of our country’s greatest accomplishments in the twentieth century. That legacy of international responsibility—now profoundly tarnished by the Conservatives—was fundamental to how we saw ourselves and how others saw us. Looking forward, our New Democratic team will not give up until Canada has reclaimed its role as an unyielding voice for peace on the world stage.
Again, thank you for your message. For more information on our team of New Democrats, please visit: http://www.ndp.ca
