Revue Politique

March 3, 2014

The tension continues to escalate in Ukraine, where Russia has sent troops to the province of Crimea, a move that has drawn strong criticism from all G7 countries. Canada has recalled its ambassador to Russia, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper reiterated his support for a new government in a telephone call to his Ukrainian counterpart. Pierre Donais analyzes this situation with Professor Jabeur Fathally. Pierre also discusses the day’s events with MPs Jacques Gourde (Conservative Party), Lysane Blanchette-Lamothe (NDP) and John McCallum (Liberal Party). Meanwhile, Canada’s Official Languages Commissioner, Graham Fraser, discusses the problems faced by people seeking legal services in both official languages.
