Mr. Speaker, today we honour the lives and memories of the Heavenly Hundred.
For three months, thousands of Ukrainians occupied Kyiv's Independence Square and peacefully protested the corrupt regime of President Viktor Yanukovych.
I stood on the Maidan in Ukraine six years ago among the ash and bloodstains left from the brutal crackdown on these innocent Euromaidan protestors. Their bravery and sacrifice as they stood up against Yanukovych's thugs deserve our highest praise.
Ukraine and their friends around the world now carry forward the legacy of the Heavenly Hundred and all those who took part in the Revolution of Dignity as the battle for democracy and the territorial integrity of Ukraine continues even today.
Canada's Conservatives will always support the people of Ukraine in their pursuit of freedom, democracy and human rights.
