Canada's capital shows clear signs of support for Ukraine

In a show of solidarity and support for Ukraine and its people, the City of Ottawa has installed street signs reading "Free-Libre Ukraine" along Charlotte Street in the Sandy Hill neighbourhood right in front of the Russian Embassy.

Eight yellow and blue signs the colours of the Ukrainian flag went up along the street Wednesday afternoon.

"This is a small symbol of defiance," said Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson, who held the signs for a photo-op.

"Every single day a Russian employee goes into that building, they will be reminded with these signs looking down on them that they are engaged in war crimes, and an illegal war and an illegal invasion of a beautiful, peaceful country.

2. I agree, it is a great move...

It may be seen as symbolic but it speaks volumes over all, imo.
