Halton Hills Council Resolution Supports Ukraine

HALTON HILLS, ON – Saddened, disgusted and disturbed are some of the words Halton Hills Mayor Rick Bonnette used to describe his feelings about the Russian invasion into Ukraine. The issue prompted a lengthy discussion and unanimous support at yesterday’s Council meeting, for a resolution supporting the federal government’s sanctions against Russia.


“We have seen the images, in the comforts of our homes, of Ukrainian children and families huddled in the subways and bomb shelters,” said the Mayor. “I know we are sitting around feeling helpless as to what we can do so we wrote this resolution. We wanted to speak up on behalf of our residents who are feeling the same way.”

The resolution reads in part:


NOW THEREFORE BY IT RESOLVED that our support, thoughts and prayers go out to the sovereign country of Ukraine and those Halton Hills families and friends of Ukraine decent;


AND FURTHER THAT the Town of Halton Hills are in full support of the strictest sanctions possible on Russia and Belarus by the Government of Canada;


AND FURTHER THAT the Town of Halton Hills Council fully supports the Federal Government on any supplies/aid that will assist President Zelenskyy and the people of Ukraine;


AND FURTHER THAT the Council for the Town of Halton Hills call on the Federal and Provincial levels of government to assist and welcome those fleeing the war into our country;


Though an ocean and almost 8000 km away, Halton Hills has historical ties to Ukraine including Camp Veselka – a former summer camp from the 1950’s that was located just outside of Acton.
