Canadian lawmakers will be called to explain return of Nord Stream turbines

According to a story in POLITICO, “Two federal ministers and three ambassadors will be asked to appear before the Canadian House of Commons foreign affairs committee to discuss the Canadian government’s controversial decision to return six Nord Stream 1 turbines to Germany.

“During a meeting Friday, the committee agreed to call on Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly and Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson to explain why the government decided to waive sanctions on Russia and return the pipeline parts to Germany, where they will be used to help deliver natural gas from Russia. The ministers will be asked to appear by July 22, subject to their availability.

“The committee also wants to hear from Ukrainian Ambassador Yulia Kovaliv, German Ambassador Sabine Sparwasser and EU Ambassador Melita Gabrič, as well as the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.”
