Canadian parliament causes serious embarrassment by inviting a National Socialist collaborator

It seems both Canada's and even Ukraine's representatives have caused a major scandal by allowing a Ukrainian collaborator with the Nazis to attend a conference. It's already led to the resignation of the parliamental speaker:
The speaker of Canada's House of Commons resigned Tuesday for inviting a man who fought for a Nazi military unit during World War II to Parliament to attend a speech by the Ukrainian president.

Just after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered an address in the House of Commons on Friday, Canadian lawmakers gave 98-year-old Yaroslav Hunka a standing ovation when Speaker Anthony Rota drew attention to him. Rota introduced Hunka as a war hero who fought for the First Ukrainian Division.

Observers over the weekend began to publicize the fact that the First Ukrainian Division also was known as the Waffen-SS Galicia Division, or the SS 14th Waffen Division, a voluntary unit that was under the command of the Nazis.

[...] Poilievre said everyone in the House of Commons on Friday should have been vetted with Zelenskyy in attendance. Robert Bothwell, a historian and professor at the University of Toronto, called Rota clueless for waiting so long to step down. He said an apology from Trudeau is also justified. "He should not make it personal; there is nothing he personally did wrong, but the event embarrassed the country and as PM he takes responsibility," Bothwell said. "Trudeau doesn't have the strongest image and this will cause other leaders to see him as damaged goods."
This definitely won't help Zelenskyy's image as a leader of a country now sadly under attack by Russia, any more than it'll help Trudeau, who was sadly reelected a few years ago, despite his incompetence, and where he's leading the country now. If Zelenskyy applauded Hunka, that was wrong. Definitely an atrocity, including how Hunka never stood trial for his offenses.
