Motion of support for Ukraine

At the March 15 meeting of Town Council, Councillor Jodi MacKay brought forward the following motion:

I would like to acknowledge that the Town of Wolfville stands united with the people of Ukraine. Their courage and determination are an inspiration to us all.

We unequivocally condemn this unprovoked and illegal invasion. Democracy and freedom are under attack and it is our hope that the whole world will stand up to Russia and say "no."

So I move that the Town of Wolfville express its unwavering support for Ukraine’s people, sovereignty and territorial integrity and that the Town condemn Russia’s wholly unprovoked and wanton invasion of Ukraine and calls on Russia to cease and withdraw all military operations within Ukraine immediately.  

The motion passed with unanamous support.
