On Aug. 24, Ukraine will be observing the six-month mark since Russia invaded, as well as the 31st year of independence.
Although Ukrainians are expected to mark the anniversary of gaining independence from the Soviet Union in a celebratory fashion, the continuing war and threat of attacks will likely temper the day over concerns that Russia will launch long-range missiles onto Ukrainian towns and cities.
Sadly, Canada – the first Western country to recognize Ukraine as an independent country in 1991 – will be largely absent during the celebrations in Ukraine this year.

A new study from the non-profit Angus Reid Institute finds a majority of Canadians (58%) say sexual harassment and sexual assault are a major problem in youth hockey, while another 17 per cent feel this is a problem, but a minor one.
Those closest to the sport share this view. More than half (56%) of Canadians with a connection to youth hockey, whether current or past, see sexual misconduct in hockey culture as a major issue. Among this group, women of all ages are more likely to perceive a major problem compared to men in their same generational bracket. Men younger than 35 are least likely to agree.
