Newsline: Toronto unveils ‘Free Ukraine’ signs in front of Russian consulate

In a show of solidarity with the Ukrainian people, Toronto unveiled “Free Ukraine” signs outside of the Russian Consulate on St. Clair Avenue on Sunday. The area will now also be called “Free Ukraine Square” on an honourary basis. Speaking at the unveiling Sunday morning, Toronto Mayor John Tory said he wanted to make it clear that the city “joins the rest of the world in expressing our absolute outrage at what is going on in Ukraine” and at the “unlawful, treacherous, murderous invasion that is taking place.” (https://globalnews.ca/news/8696219/toronto-free-ukraine-signs-russian-consulate/) Tory said the signs “send a message” to Russia that Ukraine should be free. “‘Free Ukraine’ means back to being a free Ukraine where people are not faced with this atrocious invasion,” he said. Tory said he hopes that when Torontonians see the signs, they will be reminded that the city stands in solidarity with Ukraine and its people.
