I know I’m late to address this, but here is the video of Justin Trudeau welcoming Syrian refugees to Canada. This should have been us, this is supposedly what we stand for, but I’m glad there is someone and a country and people like this. Thank you Canada for picking up the ball we dropped. Good on you, as they say.
P.S. I think we might have to steal Justin Trudeau. I’m pretty sure he was actually born in America. First there was that cabinet and then his comments about women and now this. Yeah, pretty sure we can find some proof around here somewhere that he’s American.
Update: Now I’m just getting upset about this after seeing Trump’s ugly face on the front of the Times. Canada puts out this wonderful welcoming, tolerant, embracing face to the world, and we put out Trump’s ugly hateful face bleating on about shutting down the borders to all Muslims and calling Mexicans rapists.
