The flags at Queen's Park are at half-mast Thursday to honour those hurt and killed in violence in the Ukraine.

This comes after statements by all three parties before Question Period on the situation there.

Premier Kathleen Wynne expressed condolences to families and friends of "victims of these tragic events."

Wynne also called for sanctions by the European Union, two hours before the announcement by the EU to do so. The Premier also called on the Canadian government to deploy Canadians to hospitals, courts and morgues in the Ukraine.

Deputy Leader of the Progressive Conservatives Christine Elliott also offered condolences, noting the daily violence seen from the area.

Ukrainian-Canadian NDP MPP Tara Natyshak thanked MPPs for making this a priority.  He says he has family members in the Ukraine who are frightened the violence seen will escalate.
