OTTAWA - Russia imposed a travel ban Monday on 13 Canadian lawmakers and officials — retaliation for Canada's imposing sanctions on 32 Russians and nine Ukrainians, as well as a Russian bank which caters to senior bureaucrats.
Here's a list of the banned Canadians:
— Andrew Scheer, Speaker of the House of Commons.
— Peter Van Loan, government House leader.
— Dean Allison, Conservative MP for Niagara West-Glanbrook.
— Ted Opitz, Conservative MP for Etobicoke Centre.
— James Bezan, Conservative MP for Selkirk-Interlake.
— Irwin Cotler, Liberal MP for Mount Royal.
— Chrystia Freeland, Liberal MP for Toronto Centre.
— Paul Dewar, NDP MP for Ottawa Centre.
— Wayne Wouters, the clerk of the Privy Council.
— Jean-Francois Tremblay, deputy secretary to the cabinet.
— Christine Hogan, assistant secretary to the cabinet.
— Sen. Raynell Andreychuk, Conservative senator.
— Paul Grod, national president of the Ukrainian Canadian Congress.
Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version identified Andreychuk as a Liberal.
