Statement by Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown on Ukraine’s Independence Day

Today, Ontario PC Leader Patrick Brown issued the following statement marking Ukraine’s Independence Day


“On behalf of the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party, please accept my very best wishes to everyone celebrating Ukrainian Independence Day. 

I am proud that Canada was the Western country to recognize Ukraine’s independence in 1991.  

Our two nations continue to have an incredibly strong bond today.  Our country is home to well over 1.2 million Canadians of Ukrainian heritage with close to one-third making their home in Ontario.  

Canadians of Ukrainian descent have left and continue to leave an historic mark on our province.  Your welcomed contributions are reflected in our economic, political, social and cultural life.

I look forward to working together to build a better, more prosperous Ontario. 

I look forward to the day when Ukraine will be free and prosperous again.”
