Canadian diplomats and their families are staying in Ukraine for now but the federal government’s reviewing their safety.
That from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who is not saying if Ottawa would order their evacuation nor if there’s a possibility of sending troops to counter Russia’s military build-up along the border.
”There are many contingency plans in place. The safety of Canadian diplomats and their families is of course paramount … we will make determinations based on safety on the ground,” says the prime minister.
Hew vows Canada will continue to be there for Ukraine.
”This is something that matters deeply to us and I can tell you that we will be looking at the situation in Ukraine as part of our cabinet discussions over the next three days.”
